Local person of fame visits

That's right! We had Nick Tomihama visit our classroom today. How exciting to see his work and hear firsthand how he makes his bows, arrows and arrowheads. He knows his stuff!
He even managed to show use how the geometry we had just studied that morning, is used in the making of arrowheads!  Yes! Practical, everyday use of math! Warms a teachers heart! Thanks Mr. Tomihama!

Nick took the students out to try their hand at throwing large darts with an atlatl. After some warm up shots, they were able to send those darts flying fifty yards or so.
