This Week's Home Share: What would you take if you had ten minutes to pack a backpack with belongings, and like the Refugees in our book, would never be home again?

Math: Working with ratios. Students calculated the number of chips in a Dorito Roulette bag. Using that information, they then calculated the number of hot chips and not hot chips. The information they had was: each bag is 235 grams, 21 chips = 50 grams, the ratio of hot to not chips is 1:6
