Family Reunion

Use the least number of tables in an arrangement to seat the most people at a big family dinner.

Through this activity, connections can be made between counting tables and area as well as counting people (one per side) and perimeter. Children will probably notice that the number of tables can be the same but the number of seats changes, and that there are minimums and maximums for each particular number of tables.
