This map shows every state decorated for its favorite Halloween candy. Even though Snickers is America’s favorite candy bar overall, it’s the top candy in only a couple of states. Candy corn is also all over the map, since Americans buy and eat 20 million *pounds* of those funny orange triangles. Of course, out of the 600 million pounds of candy we’ll buy in total, that just sounds like a little snack.

*Wee ones:* What shape is the brown and green Milky Way state (Colorado) near the middle? How many sides does it have?

*Little kids:* Find one of your favorite candies on the map. How many other times does it show up? *Bonus:* If tonight you get 10 kinds of candy with exactly 10 pieces of each, how do you count up all your pieces by 10s?

*Big kids:* Count the states with your favorite candy. Out of 50 states, how many have some other favorite candy? *Bonus:* If every candy sold 20 million pounds this week, how many candies would it take to add up to the 600 million pound total? (Hint if needed: How many would add up to 60 million pounds?)

__Answers:__

*Wee ones:* A rectangle, which has 4 sides.

*Little kids:* Different for everyone…it might show up twice, 3 times or even 4 times! *Bonus:* 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100.

*Big kids:* Different for everyone…subtract 1, 2, 3 or 4 from 50 (giving you 49, 48, 47, or 46 states). *Bonus:* 30 candies, since it would take 3 just to get to 60, and then you need 10 times that.
