CATAPULTS-CHILDREN’S ENGINEERING PROJECT WITH MARSHMALLOWS!

Today the students in Mrs. Locher’s First Grade worked in small groups to design and build a catapult that had to force a marshmallow across the room.  The students then measured the distance their marshmallow traveled.  Here are some pictures.  It was very successful.  One traveled almost across the entire length of our classroom!  WOW!
