The 5th graders have been studying about force and motion the last couple of weeks. So, on Halloween they were given materials and instructed to make a simple catapult that would launch candy pumpkins. Students were challenged to make adjustments to their catapult to increase the distance the pumpkins would fly. Students also compared how different amounts of force applied to the catapult affected the flight of the pumpkin. The students did a fantastic job with this assignment and had a great time "Chunkin' Punkins."
