After reading Jiemba & Friends, I started thinking about boomerangs. I remember my cousin having one when I was a kid. I’m not sure any of us had much success getting it to fly back. Regardless, I always thought they were fascinating and I’ve realized a lot of people have questions about boomerangs.
- Who invented the boomerang?
- When was the boomerang made?
- Why were boomerangs invented?
- How does a boomerang fly back?
We answer some of those questions and provide a fun boomerang project for kids with this free printable.
There’s a lot of science and history behind boomerangs. Check out these resources to learn more about them:
