Third Grade Catapults

Students in Mrs. Margaret Allinson’s and Mrs. Audy Lott’s third-grade class have been learning about force and motion. Each student was asked to make a catapult at home with no real specific instructions given on what it had to look like.  Students were creative and made catapults using legos, rocks, spoons, sticks, rulers or even squash.  

On Friday, October 2, students brought their catapults to school and launched marshmallows outside.  Mrs. Allinson even brought her huge catapult and launched candy to the students that made their catapults.  Students enjoyed learning about force and motion and putting their knowledge to use with their catapults.
