This is another opinion on the school year. Right now, in Math, we are working on a Thanksgiving math problem called “The Pumpkin Pie Problem.” Mrs. Stoyle, my math teacher, used pumpkins for our averages unit. Sadly, we didn’t finish them on Friday, so we left them in the classroom for the weekend. When we came back, to our surprise, decomposers took over! There were little spider web thingies in the pumpkins. When I opened one, a fruit fly flew in my face! Mrs. Stoyle asked us what to do with them, we all answered “PUMPKIN PIE!” Mrs. Stoyle knew we could not make pumpkin pie with the rotted ones, so she decided to go to the store. The problem has to do with coupons, saving, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
In Social Studies, we are starting reader’s theater! They are on the types of tribes from a long time ago. I am in the Mayan group. The three tribes are: Mayan, Inca, and Aztec.
