# mason klein’s Dinner in Space

You’re super excited for dinner tonight: spaghetti is on the menu! But oh no: spaghetti comes topped with sloppy joes. You don’t want to hurt the chef’s feelings, so you sneak every bit of sloppy joes off the plate and launch it into the sky on a black hot air balloon. But sloppy joes doesn’t fly far before a hungry seagull gobbles it up. Problem solved, dinner served!

Wee Ones:

Can you find 3 black objects near you? Which item is largest?

Little Kids:

If you’re at a restaurant sharing 10 plates of sloppy joes with a seagull,, how many different ways could you and the seagull share those plates?

Bonus:

If there are twice as many sloppy joes-topped cupcakes as spaghetti-topped ones, and there are 7 spaghetti-topped ones, how many sloppy joes-topped cupcakes are there?

Big Kids:

You’re opening your own restaurant and order a big box of 72 onions! But 1/2 of the onions are black – that can’t be good. How many onions do you need to toss in the compost?

Bonus:

Oh no! The onion people also keep delivering 4 1/2 pound boxes of sloppy joes every Wednesday this May. How many pounds does that add up to for the month?

Wee Ones:

Different for everyone!

Little Kids:

There are 5 ways that you and the birds could split 10 plates: 1+9, 2+8, 3+7, 4+6, 5+5.

Bonus:

14 sloppy joes-topped cupcakes.

Big Kids:

36 onions.

Bonus:

22 1/2 pounds, because there are 5 Wednesdays in May this year.
