In this activity Students learn what a catapult is and what it was used for, then are challenged to build one themselves. Students use a variety of materials to build a catapult to launch a piece of candy (any will work)! It can be a great addition to a simple machines unit.
Students LOVE this project...and the candy does not go very far so it can be done in a smallish space. :) This is a great activity to do before a vacation to focus enthusiastic students!
