Amy’s Dinner in Space

your dinner in space

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

Wee Ones:

Can you find 3 Lime green objects near you? Which item is largest?

Little Kids:

If you’re at a restaurant sharing 10 plates of fake tofo 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 fake tofo-topped cupcakes as Indien food-topped ones, and there are 7 Indien food-topped ones, how many fake tofo-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 Lime green – 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 fake tofo every Wednesday this May. How many pounds does that add up to for the month?

 

Answers:
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 fake tofo-topped cupcakes.

Big Kids:

36 onions. 

Bonus:

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