Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
10 small rubber bands
1 normal rubber band
A pen shaft
2 dowels (those stick things)
Step 2: Cutting Dowels
Cut the two dowels evenly in half
Step 3: Assembling the Dowels
Put the two Small rubber bands on each end of the dowels (after you put the dowels together in pairs) so that the now smaller dowels are in pairs
Step 4: Putting the Two Dowels Together
Like in the picture, you want to wrap a rubber band around the dowels so that they stay together
(In the picture the crossbow is on its back)
Step 5: Putting the Pen Shaft on the Cross Bow
Like in the picture, wrap the dowel cross and the pen shaft together.
(You may have to cut the pen shaft a bit)
Step 6: Stringing the Crossbow
Cut the big rubber band and put it in the crossbow like I did in the picture
Step 7: You're Finished!!!!!
