The possum trap - THE POWER POSSUM TRAP! - WALT - to create a pest trap to solve a problem in the bush


THE POWER POSSUM TRAP








The materials we needed to make THE POWER POSSUM TRAP 
  • 2 small cardboard boxes without tops
  • glue gun
  • tape
  • nuts (walnut)
  • wire
  • toilet paper roll
  • magnets
The times we came across difficulties

We came across a difficulty when we did not have a box. We went into the store room and found 2 boxes without the tops we thought that we can join them together and make one box.
Another difficulty was when our door wasn't closing tight enough to keep the possum inside, so we found magnets that we could use and then we stuck one the door and one to the inside of the box. 

Things we could have done better

One thing we could have done better is that we could have used string instead of wire because the wire is harder to bend instead of the string. Another thing we could  done better is we could have just bought one big box instead of using 2 boxes to create one.
