Gold Coin Catapult Monthly Challenge ~ March

Our school-wide monthly challenge for March is Gold Coin Catapults!  We have made catapults before, so the kids are getting pretty good at it.  We are also including a home project making Leprechaun Traps.  You can click here to get the Leprechaun Trap STEM Challenge FREEBIE!

We decided to pair this challenge with these two books:



This STEM Challenge needs very few materials!  You only need craft sticks, plastic gold coins, and rubber bands.  Click here for the link to this monthly STEM challenge.






Here are some of our catapult designs for this challenge!  Even though the kids come up with such different solutions, they all still work!   It is so amazing to see their thinking as they complete the different STEM challenges!
