Kira’s Dinner in Space

your dinner in space

You’re super excited for dinner tonight: Chilli and cornbread is on the menu! But oh no: Chilli and cornbread comes topped with Steak and pork. You don’t want to hurt the chef’s feelings, so you sneak every bit of Steak and pork off the plate and launch it into the sky on a Black hot air balloon. But Steak and pork 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 Steak and pork with a seagull,, how many different ways could you and the seagull share those plates?


If there are twice as many Steak and pork-topped cupcakes as Chilli and cornbread-topped ones, and there are 7 Chilli and cornbread-topped ones, how many Steak and pork-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?


Oh no! The onion people also keep delivering 4 1/2 pound boxes of Steak and pork 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.


14 Steak and pork-topped cupcakes.

Big Kids:

36 onions. 


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