Squirt Gun Geometry

Fourth graders at Maine Memorial Elementary used squirt guns to practice measuring angles! They also made predictions of how far the water will shoot out when a squirt gun is held at different angles. How to: Have kids draw oversized angles on poster board. Then, have them fill up their guns and use their poster board angle as a guide. They hold their gun up to the angle line and shoot! Click here to see squirt gun math in action! (Note: Use foam water shooters aka max liquidators instead of guns - no need for guns at school)
