Third-Grade Students Engineer Ways to Catch a Turkey

Students build a turkey trap

How do you catch a turkey? With a cage of course!

Tom the Turkey was on the loose in Matthew Paterson Elementary School during the recent Grade 3 Thanksgiving Celebration and it was up to our young engineers to catch him.

Using toothpicks, miniature marshmallows and their critical thinking skills, our students designed and constructed cages to catch Tom the Turkey and ensure he doesn't escape again!
