You’re super excited for dinner tonight: Ice cream is on the menu! But oh no: Ice cream comes topped with Mushrooms. You don’t want to hurt the chef’s feelings, so you sneak every bit of Mushrooms off the plate and launch it into the sky on a Blue hot air balloon. But Mushrooms doesn’t fly far before a hungry seagull gobbles it up. Problem solved, dinner served!
Can you find 3 Blue objects near you? Which item is largest?
If you’re at a restaurant sharing 10 plates of Mushrooms with a seagull,, how many different ways could you and the seagull share those plates?
If there are twice as many Mushrooms-topped cupcakes as Ice cream-topped ones, and there are 7 Ice cream-topped ones, how many Mushrooms-topped cupcakes are there?
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?
Oh no! The onion people also keep delivering 4 1/2 pound boxes of Mushrooms every Wednesday this May. How many pounds does that add up to for the month?
Different for everyone!
There are 5 ways that you and the birds could split 10 plates: 1+9, 2+8, 3+7, 4+6, 5+5.
14 Mushrooms-topped cupcakes.
22 1/2 pounds, because there are 5 Wednesdays in May this year.
