"In real life, problems do not always have clear solutions; there are no answers available in the back of the book. There may be several paths to choose from, each with their own advantages. Try to work with your teammates through any unexpected difficulties as they arise. Additionally, you'll often find these problems will stray from mathematics into other disciplines such as Science or Social Studies. This is encouraged and should make the project even more meaningful."
Agriculture has been brought into elementary classrooms across the country for many years with great success. Growing plants, hatching eggs, life cycles, just to name a few. These are lessons students become wrapped up in. Truxton community has the luxury of a rural community surrounded by agriculture which is ideal for using as a teaching resource. Working together between school, community and local ag businesses we will use the resources around us to teach our kids how to become higher level thinkers, and problem solvers who enjoy coming to school to learn.
