Riding Ferris Wheels You and your little sister go to a carnival that has both a large and a small Ferris wheel. You get on the Ferris wheel at the same time your sister gets on the small Ferris wheel. The rides begin as soon as you are both buckled into your seats.

Looking at Cicada Cycles Cicadas spend most of their lives underground. Some populations of cicadas come above ground every 13 years Others come up every 17 years. The emergence of the cicadas are their key to survival. (may be up to 1.5 million per acre)

So….what’s the bad news? There has been at least one terrible year when the cicadas laid so many eggs in trees that they wrecked all the buds in the young trees. What might have happened to cause such a mess? How many years until this happens again?

Bagging Snacks Jane and her friends are going on a hiking trip. Jane wants to make snacks of apples and trail mix to take on the trip. She has 24 apples and 36 bags of trail mix.
