I would explore The Sowing Seeds activity with my students. This context requires students to divide in order to reveal the number of parts (or seeds) to each group (or cup). I could use an activity like this one to help students relate partitive division to a context. By adjusting the numbers to more friendly numbers, I could lower the floor. And I could make it a bit more challenging by altering the number of groups leaving students to grapple with leftover seeds.
