4th Grade Catapults Pumpkins

4th Grade Catapults Pumpkins

In Technology, 4th Grade learned about the history of catapults and compared many designs of them.

We also watched a video from the annual Pumpkin Chunking Championships in Delaware.

We then designed and built our own catapults using craft sticks, rubber bands, and plastic spoons to launch candy pumpkins.

We competed against each other in the Pumpkin Catapult Olympics, where our catapults were put to the test for distance, precision, and accuracy in 6 different stations.
