I really have trouble with this. How about: we help a kid figure out how
to add two fractions with unlike denominators (easily done with
manpulatives)...

Note that the manipulatives provide the reality context; I suspect most
kids would find them more interesting than the atmosphere on Mars.

Cheers.
