Students of any age collaborate to accurately launch beanbags with this oversized slingshot. Individual hands-on investigations explore accuracy, force, and trajectory by changing one variable at a time. Keep everything consistent for the highest accuracy, or swap out light, medium, and heavy resistance bands to change the force behind beanbags. Then experiment with degree of release to alter the trajectory of projectiles.
When lessons conclude, allow students to learn autonomously using trial and error to hone their accuracy! Older students can apply critical thinking to generate ideas about the differences between accuracy and precision or kinetic and potential energy. An ABS frame is lightweight but durable, withstanding shot after shot and allowing for far-flinging STEM lessons almost anywhere. Bands connect easily via carabiners and are covered for safety.
Lesson direction is adaptable to grade ranges K-4 and 5-8. Frame is 41"L x 47"W x 28"H; 16 lb. Recommended for Elementary and up.
