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