Classroom Catapult Design Project

About this Skype lesson

Students will research the history and science behind building siege weapons such as catapults. Students will share what they have learned by creating multimedia projects using prezi, glogster, etc. Students will locate and or design their own siege weapon using craft sticks or classroom supplies using marshmallows as projectiles. As a final part of the project students will battle each other using their weapons to defeat castle walls made of plastic cups.

I teach fifth grade science and my fifth grade is currently investigating catapults using an Xpult - which launches a ping pong into the air using 4 different variables. Are you still interested in making a skype connection about catapults?
