How many people can sit equally in five rows with the given number of people?
First students could estimate by visualizing the people sitting in each row. Then they can use equally cut pieces of yarn to place in each row. Explain to them that each piece of yarn is equivalent to a person. They will count each string to figure out how many people will sit in each row. They could also do skip counting which adds up to the total.
