PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Halloween themed science can be super fun!
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 candy pumpkin! This can be a great addition to a simple machines unit.

Students LOVE this project...and the candy pumpkins do not go very far so it can be done in a smallish space. :) This is a great activity to do on Halloween to focus enthusiastic students!
Enjoy!
