Traps with Barry
We made some traps with Barry, it was a lot of fun to construct the trap boxes. We learned about the purpose for each trap e.g. whether it trapped rats, or possums. It was really interesting to learn about how to make them.
We got pieces of wood and screwed them together to form the shape. Then we got small pieces of wire mesh and fitted them into the shape. We cut small holes in the mesh so that the predators could get in.
We fitted the traps into the boxes and secured them with screws. After that we got a piece of metal with words carved into it and a picture of a Whio, we placed it over the lid of the trap box. Finally we spray-painted over the metal and underneath the logo.
