Product Description
Students will use given materials to create 2 pom-pom catapults using very different characteristics. The objective is to construct the launcher that sends the pom-pom the furthest distance. Students will then collect data from their group's catapult, other groups' catapults, and calculate measures of center and probability.

My students thoroughly enjoyed this assignment. I was great to see their creativity and problem solving skills. We spent about four 45-minute class periods on this activity.

I ordered the pom poms from Amazon, 1000 in a bag and five different sizes: LoveS 1000 Pcs Pom Poms Craft Making Assorted Sizes & Colors,


Student example, rubric, and answer sheet included.

My coworker and I try to incorporate interdisciplinary assignments into our classes as much as possible. Integrating aspects of geography into math and vise versa is easier than you'd think! Check some of them out at our joint store: Middle School Mashup
