The Celts were known to use this weapon to breech Roman walls which eventually led to the Roman retreat from occupied Celtic territory.

Let’s make a catapult out of sheets of paper. It really fires!!!

Here are the materials and equipment you need:
  • 12 sheets of paper
  • scissors
  • pencil
  • ruler
  • cell tape
  • glue gun
  • rubber band

Roll up twelve sheets of paper nice and tight. Then, cut and glue the pieces together as shown in the above picture.


THE CATAPULT GAME (April 28th, 2015)
1.- Build a Roman fort with drinking straws.
2.- Put two Roman soldiers on it.
The fort has now "target boards" of different sizes on it. Each target board is worth a different amount of points.
3.- See how many points you can get with five projectiles (sweets!!!).
