MATERIALS NEEDED

  • A can with no lid
  • String or rope
  • Tape
  • barrel
  • Gold
  • paper
  • colors

HOW IT WORKS

There is a sign on the wall that has the words Gold on it and it has arrows pointing at the Gold. So this is how it will lead the leprechaun to get on the board. Second the leprechaun will walk a little over half way to the end of the board and snap the trap will bust. The board will then lean over to the other side and the gold will slide off. The leprechaun will fall down and slide down the end of the board that is touching the ground. Last since the tape broke that was holding the string down, the opened can will then fall down right on top of him and catch him.

HOW SIMPLE MACHINES MAKE THINGS EASIER

First of all I have an inclined plane. This simple machine helps makes things way easier. When the leprechaun walks on the inclined plane (board) and it flips down to the other side and the tape bust, thats what makes the trap drop. Second I have a pulley. The pulley helps a lot too. This simple machine helps so that the the leprechaun won't see that there is a trap planned. It will just hang there until he steps onto the other side of the board.
