Challenge your students to build the TALLEST tower they can out of pumpkin gummy candies and toothpicks! What better to do on a crazy holiday day than science! Keep students engaged, occupied and learning with this simple STEM activity. Recording sheet included for students to analyze their structures.
Halloween themed science can be super fun! In this activity Students learn what a catapult is and what it was used for, then are challenged to build one themselves. Students use a variety of materials to build a catapult to launch a candy pumpkin! This can be a great addition to a simple machines unit.Students LOVE this project...and the candy pumpkins do not go very far so it can be done in a smallish space. :) This is a great activity to do on Halloween to focus enthusiastic students!Enjoy...
