In this activity, we've created two small tasks to challenge your students.
- If you know how much ice cream is eaten every year, how much is the "average" American eating?
- And, what will it cost me to make my own ice cream at home? Is that a good deal?

All you can eat ice cream! - All the ice cream that you can eat for only 10 cents! Wow, that's a great deal! How great a deal was that?
The history of the Dairy Queen franchise began with this ad in Illinois in 1938. I know that 10 cents was worth more in the past but was it worth enough even then? How much would that all-you-can-eat ice cream special cost today? We know that the business didn't fail but did they break even on this sale?
