Oh, you mentioned the paper catapult! I had thirty kids make those at once last term, then started a major cross-class war with dried peas as ammunition - the casualties were appalling...
I'm in physics this year, I should bring this up when we get to projectile motion.
Heh, guess what one of our projects is: Make a trebuchet :D Along with bridge concepts, bottle rockets, centrifuges, and some wicked mechanical K'nex contraptions, just to name a few.. ; )
