      I tried this in my grade 7 class-Students loved it! Thanks for posting.

    This would be good for either of my scout groups (boys or girls). I'm thinking they would make a good gathering activity to then race. See which one goes the farthest, fastest, or which one knocks down the most "pins" perhaps?
