# Debbie’s Dinner in Space

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

Wee Ones:

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

Little Kids:

If you’re at a restaurant sharing 10 plates of carrots 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 carrots-topped cupcakes as peanut butter cake-topped ones, and there are 7 peanut butter cake-topped ones, how many carrots-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 yellow – 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 carrots 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 carrots-topped cupcakes.

Big Kids:

36 onions.

Bonus:

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