When I looked over our Classical Conversations presentation schedule, I noticed that next week’s presentation is “How to Make/Do Something.” This was our favorite one last year! My boys love to build and create….and show their projects to others! At first, I was tempted to keep it simple…..like how to make a pbj sandwich or how to clean a toilet. (They could use a refresher course on that! …….hmmmm….Maybe their presentation could be on how to aim and hit the toilet……..probably not on the “CC-approved” list…. ) But, since I am terrible about doing crafty type things with my kids, I decided to put a little more effort into this presentation.
So….I went to my pinterest boards looking for ideas that related to our study of Rome. I came across an idea that I had pinned about how to build a catapult from Creekside Learning. As soon as I mentioned the idea of flinging objects across the house, my boys began grunting and hollering in a caveman-like manner. I guess that is a yes?
So….here it is…..how to build a catapult…….
