Odds and Ends
Here are some pictures of our outing today. These traps are to catch small mammals, which mammals do you think we could catch in these traps?
I am getting materials ready for the trap... why do you think it is important for us to put hay in each trap?
I am stuffing it way in the back so the two pieces can fit together like a banana.
Now I am assembling the door and the holding piece of the trap.
One done, 19 to go!
Team E - Miss Beeman & Mr. Wolfe, with our 20 traps that we assembled and are about to go set out. Why might we need to set 20 traps in a row next to 4 other teams doing the same thing? (Hint: draw a picture if you can.)
Here is our first trap we laid. Why do you think it is shaped like a banana and slanting down?
