Model Builder to calculate multiple shape files

I have multiple shape files that all contain a field named "Area." Currently, I am forced to calculate the area field in each individual shape file which is very time consuming. Is anyone aware of a way to batch calculate something like this?  Would the use of an iterator be the way to go?  I was thinking of trying to build a model in to do this but I wasn't sure if it was even possible.

Any thoughts? I don't have a ton of experience with Model Builder, and really zero experience with iterators in Model Builder. 

As always, thank in advance!
