# Neha’s Dinner in Space

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

Wee Ones:

Can you find 3 Pastel rainbow objects near you? Which item is largest?

Little Kids:

If you’re at a restaurant sharing 10 plates of Rice 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 Rice-topped cupcakes as Sweet pongal-topped ones, and there are 7 Sweet pongal-topped ones, how many Rice-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 Pastel 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 Rice 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 Rice-topped cupcakes.

Big Kids:

36 onions.

Bonus:

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