Archery offers many benefits, including these six health benefits. But did you know that archery also helps students perform well in class? Although reading is important, archery appeals to tactile and visual learners in a different way: By providing hands-on learning in a relaxed, fun environment.
Besides improving focus, confidence and goal-setting abilities, archery teaches students math and science. For instance, understanding how the body works teaches students which muscles to use when drawing the bow. Physics helps them understand arrow trajectories, thus improving aim.
But did you know that archery also involves math? Understanding the math behind archery helps you release the most precise shots so you can hit the bull’s-eye and take home a win.
