Morning Message for November 20

Happy Math Morning!  Did you know that the Cherokee people were very smart and hardworking?  These people were the original residents of the American southeast region, particularly Georgia, North and South Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee. They often built three homes to live in during the year. One was a winter home that was shaped like an upside-down basket, which kept them warm on cold days. The other was a summer home that was shaped like a square cabin and allowed families to remain cool and comfortable. The other was called a sweat lodge, which was a compact, closed-off cabin constructed for people who might be ill, and they were placed there so they could stay away from others while they returned to good health. See if you can determine by the shapes of the cabins below which cabin is the winter home, summer home, and sweat lodge.
