Liz Wing’s fourth graders learned a little Native American history and did a some math computing last week. We were given 22 heirloom squash seeds, donated by a member of the Seneca Nation. If we needed to plant four seeds per hill, how many hills would we need to create? This challenged some students to think of creative ways to show how they solved the problem. Often at school, explaining a problem’s solution is more important than how quickly the answer is obtained.
