Grade 5

The grade 5 class made mini catapults. They used everyday objects to build a simple machine with a lever as it??s main component. The students identified the fulcrum, the resistance force, and the effort force of their machines. They tested the effectiveness of their catapult by measuring the distance it could toss a marshmallow. Students then evaluated their machines and discussed possible improvements to their design.
