Garden full of potatoes<br />Farming during the 13 colonies was very difficultbecause the soil was not fertile by the ocean. <br />Colby wants to plant a garden of potatoes. In his garden, he has 28 rows with 7 potatoes in each. <br /><ul><li>How many potatoes does Colby have all together?</li></li></ul><li>Hint<br />Think about the area of the garden.<br />Area=(l x w) <br />
Fishing frenzy<br />Back during the time of the 13 colonies, people could not go to the store to buy their food. Those who lived along the Atlantic coast would catch fish and whales. <br />Owen caught 23 fish and 36 whales. He threw back 7 fish and 13 whales before he left, taking the rest back to his family. <br /><ul><li>How many fish did he take back to his family? Whales?
Total?</li></li></ul><li>HINT<br />Draw a picture to represent the fish and whales.<br />
My Small classroom<br />Schoolhouses during the 13 colonies were very small compared to those we see today. <br />Jack’s classroom during the colonial times was 9x4 square feet. <br /><ul><li>What was the area of Jack’s classroom?
Assuming each student needs 4 square feet in the classroom, what is the maximum number of students his classroom can hold?</li></li></ul><li>HINT<br />Draw the 9x4 square foot classroom, giving each student their required square footage.<br />
Fun at the park<br />The American colonists had parks in their communities, but they did not have playgrounds or swing sets. In colonial America, parks were referred to as the common.<br />It was a busy day at the park. Madison sat by the entrance, watching as people filled the park. She counted 245 people, then 184,103, and finally another 67 people.<br /><ul><li>How many people visited the park on this busy day? </li></li></ul><li>HINT<br />Think about ALL the people together in one group. <br />
