Grade 4

Read the Headline Story to the students. Encourage them to create solutions using the information from the story.

Two more states are being added to the United States. What are some ways to arrange the stars on the flag, including stars added for the new states?

- 1 row of 52
- 2 rows of 26
- 4 rows of 13
- 13 rows of 4
- 26 rows of 2
- 52 rows of 1
- Since the 50 states on the current flag are not in a rectangle, but 5 rows of 6 and 4 rows of 5, the new flag with 52 stars can have 4 rows of 6 and 4 rows of 7.
