# Akshara’s Dinner in Space

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

Wee Ones:

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

Little Kids:

If you’re at a restaurant sharing 10 plates of raw onions with a seagull, how many different ways could you and the seagull sort those plates into 2 piles?

Bonus:

If there are twice as many raw onions-topped cupcakes as Dosa-topped ones, and there are 7 Dosa-topped ones, how many raw onions-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 white – 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 raw onions 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 into 2 piles: 1+9, 2+8, 3+7, 4+6, 5+5.

Bonus:

14 raw onions-topped cupcakes.

Big Kids:

36 onions.

Bonus:

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