One of my favorite foods is a burrito. One of my favorite places to get a burrito is Chipotle. Their food is delicious and environmentally friendly.
For Halloween 2016, Chipotle ran a promotion and charity drive. Chipotle offered $3 burritos to customer who come dressed in their Halloween costumes after 3 p.m. on October 31st. Chipotle hoped to donate up to one million dollars to the Chipotle Cultivate Foundation.
Teachers, give your students time to ponder and discuss these questions:
- How realistic is it for Chipolte to sell one million dollars worth of $3 burritos in one night?
- What more information would you like to have to decide if this is even possible?
