It is almost Fall Break! Social Studies class does not have to end, though. Post comments and questions while we are off and I will answer. :-)
Need something to keep you busy over the break? Remember the atlatl? It was a spear thrower used by Paleo-Indians. Below is a video clip showing it in use. One of the guys makes one just like the Paleo-indians did. You can make one, too! However, you need to ask an adult for help because you may need to use a knife. Here's a link to how to make an atlatl: http://www.primitiveways.com/atlatl_branch.html. If you make one, email pictures of you using it to me and I will post them on this blog! (This website won't allow you to post them yourself.) My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy atlatling and fall breaking!
