Tinker Thinkers–Catapults!


finishedThis week at Tinker Thinkers we made craft stick catapults.  I saw this idea on Ms. Kelly at the Library and HAD to try it!  We really had a lot of fun!  For projectiles, I gave the kids each a pom pom and a small sheet of aluminum foil to crumple up into a ball.  We hypothesized which would go further and why.
