Bow and Arrow

Post  David Strauss on Mon Nov 17, 2014 9:28 pm

Bow and Arrows were used in wars. This was an easy way to take down the enemy by pulling the string from the bow, put an arrow in the string, and then let go. This will let the elastic string to blast back into place and making the arrow fly in the air. With a lot off practice you can get really good at it. People who use the bow and arrow are called Archers and they are for long range attacks like the catapult. Sometimes people have competition of their accuracy of shooting an arrow. This competition is set up by a round wooden surface that is painted and in the middle will be red. The point is to try to hit the red dot. These are based on points and the more far away the arrow lands from the red dot. The less points you get. Cool

Good topic, David! I learned many things by reading what you wrote. In many ancient civilizations the bows and arrows were very important weapons. Great job!

David this topic of yours about the bow and arrow was good. This is, because you talked about how they are made and their uses are for long range like the catapult. Another thing is that you talked about an accuracy completion for the bow and arrow. As you also said that there are circles colored in red where it becomes smaller that is the target. Another thing is where you shoot in the target which is smaller circles or the bigger ones you get different amount of points. Something you might have said David was that an ancient civilization learned how to use bow and arrow when they got attacked from another civilization. Very Happy

Great Work David!!1
That was some good interesting thing. They were very useful back then because they were the weapons that they used to use to fight with. Those were no the only weapons that people use. There was also a thing that you could put fire balls in it and it will fly all the way to the other side and it could destroy at least a very good portion of that part. Good Job!!

David, that was a great topic to talk about! It actually explained some things from the Hyksos, its empire, and their way of doing things. They were the ones that conquered Egypt at about 1650 B.C. and then got beaten by their own ideas and skills. From them, Egyptians discovered the compound bone, which is like the bow and arrow, just more complex.

Good work! Bow and arrow is a very important weapon. Many nations used it in wars. During the invasion of the Hyksos Egyptians discovered the newer type of this weapon, it was a compound bow. Later they used it to drive them out.
