Communicative property array 15 min demo lesson

Hi all! Does anyone have any suggestions on doing a demo lesson on the communicative property of multiplication using arrays for a 15 minute demo lesson using manipulatives/ hands on? Admin wants an entire lesson plan (40 min) but only a 15 minute actual demo lesson- this is tricky!! Can anyone please help?? Thank you!!

passing out individual packets of goldfish crackers for the kids to use to model equal groups on paper plates and then having them turn the plates to show the commutative property equation.

It was probably a spell-check change,

...but just in case: Not communicative property. Commutative property. I usually wouldn't say anything, but if you're doing a demo lesson, you wouldn't want to be embarrassed.

What a cute idea!! Thank you!! Do you think I need an exit ticket? Or have them explain the strategy? Is there even a 'strategy'? Maybe another way to add to get the same answer?
Ty so much!!!
