*A Busy Year*is a story about the 12 months.- Have your students represent the number 12 in as many different rectangles as possible.
- To do this they will need to have access to square blocks, sugar cubes, or any other set of square objects.
- They will need to combine them in all the possible ways to form rectangles. For example:
- 3 x 4
- 6 x 2
- 12 x 1
- 4 x 3
- 1x12
- 2 x 6

- Have them record their data on graph paper and write the appropriate equation for each.
