Students measure the angle and distance of an arc. In this projectile instructional activity, students observe arcs created by water guns, bow and arrows, and slingshots, then work in small groups and use protractors and strings to measure the angle and distance of an arc created by shooting a stopper from a stopper gun.

Lesson Planet has been a lifesaver for me, especially when I am in a time crunch and need a resource quickly. While I consider myself a very creative person, sometimes I need to utilize the great ideas of fellow teachers to get my creative juices flowing. Lesson Planet has been pivotal in this regard.
