Dogs love to ride in the car with their head sticking out the window. So it isn’t surprising that they also like riding trains. Eugene Bostick, an 80-year-old man in Texas, built a dog train that he pulls with his tractor. He takes care of dogs he’s found who don’t have a home. When he had just a couple of dogs, he’d let them ride in the tractor with him. But after a few more dogs showed up, he couldn’t hold them all in his lap any more. So he connected a bunch of blue carts, and ta-da, he had a dog train! Now he gives the dogs a train ride twice a week.
Wee ones: What shape are the tractor wheels?
Little kids: If there’s 1 dog in each cart, how many dogs are in front of the dog in the 7th cart? Bonus: If 3 carts are carrying 2 little dogs each, while the rest of the 8 carts each hold 1 dog, how many dogs are riding the train?
Big kids: If the dogs ride every 4th day starting on Sunday of the 1st week, in what week do they get to ride on a Tuesday? Bonus: If the dogs ride twice a week, how many rides do they get in a 52-week year?
Wee ones: Circles.
Little kids: 6 dogs. Bonus: 11, since there are 3 extra dogs beyond the usual 8.
Big kids: In the 3rd week (Sunday/Thursday, then Monday/Friday, then Tuesday/Saturday). Bonus: 104 rides.
