Huge Key Lime pie

On a cold and snowy day in Boston, two chefs created a huge Key Lime pie to remind the frozen people of the Northeast how tasty and warm the Keys of Florida are.

After you show this movie to your students, ask them what they wonder about this huge pie and what they would like to figure out.

Supposedly the huge pie served 1,000 commuters but our figuring suggests something else. This is a Yummy activity about multiples, proportions, volume and reasoning.
