You’re super excited for dinner tonight: Pizza is on the menu! But oh no: Pizza comes topped with Broccoli casserole. You don’t want to hurt the chef’s feelings, so you sneak every bit of Broccoli casserole off the plate and launch it into the sky on a Red and blue hot air balloon. But Broccoli casserole doesn’t fly far before a hungry seagull gobbles it up. Problem solved, dinner served!
Can you find 3 Red and blue objects near you? Which item is largest?
If you’re at a restaurant sharing 10 plates of Broccoli casserole with a seagull, how many different ways could you and the seagull sort those plates into 2 piles?
If there are twice as many Broccoli casserole-topped cupcakes as Pizza-topped ones, and there are 7 Pizza-topped ones, how many Broccoli casserole-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 Red and 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 Broccoli casserole 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 into 2 piles: 1+9, 2+8, 3+7, 4+6, 5+5.
14 Broccoli casserole-topped cupcakes.
22 1/2 pounds, because there are 5 Wednesdays in May this year.
