The Pre-First boys have become very interested in building their own catapults after they constructed them from blocks during center time. On Tuesday, April 11, Miss Evans invited her brother, Rivers, a catapult enthusiast himself, to class to demonstrate how to build a catapult using popsicle sticks, rubber bands, binder clips, and milk tops. The boys each made their own catapult and are excited to use them to launch objects. They have been launching various objects such as: beans, goldfish (the crackers!), and cheerios and measuring the distance with measuring tape and yard sticks.
