Teacher's Request: Many students in our district are outdoorsmen and participate in sports like fishing and hunting. The kids are also using airsoft guns for fun. I wanted to find some websites, articles, or webquests that would talk about responsibility with these activities; warn of the dangers of misuse of guns (and airsoft guns); talk about the physics behind airsoft guns and why they can be so powerful as a 'toy', etc. I do not know if this fits the topics with which you can help. Thanks for letting me know either way. I appreciate the support from PEER.
