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?
