Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Measure, Snip, and Bend

Measure, snip, and bend your stiff wire into the legs with the battery profile in the middle.
Then pull the guts out of your paracord and slip the sheath over your wire, next apply generous hot glue at the ends.
I apologize, I need a new camera(Hint, Hint).





Step 2: Glue, Adhere, and Paste

Glue your legs onto your battery, one at each end.

Step 3: Glue on the ''Eyes'', the Battery Connector, and the Switch

Glue the Eyes at the front and the switch onto the back.

Step 4: Wiring

Attach all of the wires any way you'd like but I'd recommend a series circuit.

Then Insulate all of the connections with hot glue.

Voila!
