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

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

If you’re at a restaurant sharing 10 plates of tuna with a seagull, how many different ways could you and the seagull sort those plates into 2 piles?

If there are twice as many tuna-topped cupcakes as peanut butter-topped ones, and there are 7 peanut butter-topped ones, how many tuna-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 yellow – 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 tuna 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 tuna-topped cupcakes.

36 onions.

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