Step 1: Materials and Equipment Needed

straw

square pieces of cardboard

glue gun

box cutter

cds

tape

mousetrap

dowels

zip ties

duct tape

Step 2: Step 2:wheels

use a straw then get a dowel, and 2 cds. put the straw in the middle, cut two pieces of cardboard and close it up and I should look like this image.

Step 3: Other Wheel

Repeat the steps but this time cut the straw into two little pieces

Step 4: Mousetrap Holder

Use one of your wheel sets, then get your mouse trap hold then glue it on one of the dowels you should be looking like this.

Step 5: Connecting Other Wheels

Used to dowels to create support under the mouse trap holder. Then glue it to your other will dowel and it should be looking like this.

Step 6: Mousetrap String

So now your going to get the mousetrap and get plastic sealers. Then get a doul cut it then get the plastic sealers, wrap it around the mousetrap square thing and close it on the stick do that 4 times and glue it down to the mousetrap holder. It should be looking like this.

Step 7: Mousetrap String

So now cut a piece of string that is 13 inches long then make a hook at the end then glue the opposite side of where the hook is at to the mousetraps dowel. The reason for this is to make it move by tiring it around the hook which is next step.

    Thanks for sharing your class project - you may want to re-upload some of your photos in your Intro step, the ones you provide seem to be quite pixelated.
