# Eli Bean’s Dinner in Space

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

Wee Ones:

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

Little Kids:

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

Bonus:

If there are twice as many Bacon-topped cupcakes as Cheese Grits-topped ones, and there are 7 Cheese Grits-topped ones, how many Bacon-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 Blue – 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 Bacon 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 Bacon-topped cupcakes.

Big Kids:

36 onions.

Bonus:

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