Maybe genius.

This might be the best thing I've ever read. It's really a brilliant lesson, it teaches kids so many connected ideas that should remain connected.

I will suggest that the teacher should have gone one step farther and given the crew and the slaves more personification and assigned an essay about how the slaves could have optimized their strategy. Seems a little bit advanced for 4th grade, though....
