Thanks to my tweep @ktenkely, who also authors the iLearn Technology blog, my students participated in a lesson based on the wildly popular game Angry Birds. As a class we are finishing up our unit on the middle ages, which fit perfectly with this activity. Students researched designs for medieval catapults on the computer and in books from our library. They rotated in small groups from research, to catapult building, to playing Angry Birds on the SmartBoard. Needless to say, they had a lot of fun!
