You’re super excited for dinner tonight: Cornbread is on the menu! But oh no: Cornbread comes topped with Lima beans. You don’t want to hurt the chef’s feelings, so you sneak every bit of Lima beans off the plate and launch it into the sky on a Blue hot air balloon. But Lima beans 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 Lima beans with a seagull, how many different ways could you and the seagull sort those plates into 2 piles?
If there are twice as many Lima beans-topped cupcakes as Cornbread-topped ones, and there are 7 Cornbread-topped ones, how many Lima beans-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 Lima beans 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 Lima beans-topped cupcakes.
22 1/2 pounds, because there are 5 Wednesdays in May this year.
