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 is again running a promotion and charity drive.  This time the promotion has a twist.  Chipotle is offering $3 burritos to customer who come dressed in their Halloween costumes with an “unnecessary” costume addition, after 3 p.m. on October 31st.  Chipotle will 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?
