Description

You want your students to learn and have a good time in the classroom, and our Trebuchets – Getting Started Package meets both objectives. As students put together their trebuchets, they absorb lessons about inertia, counterweights, friction, and velocity. But they’re also having a great time – not many activities give them an excuse to fling projectiles (the included clay) across the room!

Looking for standards-based activities to accompany these materials? The Trebuchets Teacher’s Guide is available for print here, or you can download a digital copy for free here.
