Here's a delicious approach to rectangular arrays which will have your scholars learning all about Peeps. They visit the online Peep headquarters to watch a history of the treat and take a virtual factory tour. Discuss why Peeps are packaged the way they are and connect this to rectangular arrays. Partners use a handout to guide them in creating their own arrays and describing them using addition and multiplication sentences. They explain the counting pattern their array demonstrates and write the related fact family. Allow scholars to apply these skills as they package various items. How many can fit in the box? They finally revisit the website to take a quiz.
