I would extend this activity to talk about the constant of proportionality and linear equations. The students could do and undo math with the information given. For example, if I had to make 55 glasses of hot chocolate how many scoops would I use. Extend that to how many containers of hot chocolate would that be. Or if I used 300 scoops of hot chocolate then how many cups of hot chocolate did I make? You could also graph this and make predictions. There are all kinds of ways you could push their thinking with this activity.
