Marshmallow Shooter Could Be a Fun Science Tool

     When I found this marshmall shooter, I immediately thought of the energy and flight units we do with our fourth graders.  What an interesting way for kids to learn about potential and kinetic energy, lift, and thrust.  I can see them measruing, creating graphs, prdicting, and refining.  It would be fun to compare mini marshmallows with the large ones too!  Check it out at http://bit.ly/OH49F3.
