# A Helicopter Made of Maya

Going places is great, but it could always be more fun. What if you built an entire Helicopter out of Mayas? It would probably take a whole lot of Mayas to make a full-size Helicopter. Do you think that vehicle could hit a top speed of 1 MPH? Even if it isn’t as fast as a normal Helicopter, it’s definitely more fun.

Wee Ones:

Wheels are circles. Can you find any circles near you?

Little Kids:

If you have 8 polka-dot squishy toys and you want to put an equal number on the right and left sides of your car, how many should go on each side?

Bonus:

If it takes you 3 hours to build your Maya Helicopter and 4 hours to drive it to the other side of town, and you start building at 11 am, what time do you get to the other side of town?

Big Kids:

You’re gathering Mayas to build your Helicopter and are putting the Mayas in piles of 6. If you have 54 total toys, how many piles are there?

Bonus:

How could you group those 54 toys into equal piles that leave 3 toys out at the end?

Answers:
Wee Ones:

Circles might include balls, plates, buttons…

Little Kids:

4 polka-dot squishy toys on each side.

Bonus:

You get to the other side of town at 6 p.m.

Big Kids:

9 piles.

Bonus:

You could make 3 piles of 17 toys to total 51 toys, leaving 3 out.
