# Mateo’s Dinner in Space

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

Wee Ones:

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

Little Kids:

If you’re at a restaurant sharing 10 plates of Thai noodles 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 Thai noodles-topped cupcakes as Donuts-topped ones, and there are 7 Donuts-topped ones, how many Thai noodles-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 Rainbow – 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 Thai noodles 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 Thai noodles-topped cupcakes.

Big Kids:

36 onions.

Bonus:

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