Flying Pumpkins for Science

Are you looking for an engaging way to keep your kiddos on task while still incorporating a little Halloween spirit into your classroom? 

Why not catapult some pumpkins around with this fun free flying pumpkins activity? 

Engage your students this Halloween with this force and motion science activity where students practice catapulting pumpkins to find their speed!  Grab the free worksheet to get started!


Students can create their own catapults using craft sticks and rubber bands, then using candy pumpkins and a little force, they can measure the distance and time to determine the speed!
