Malarkey and the Big Trap - Family Fun Edition

Author:
The A World in Motion Family Fun Edition Books provide parents and grandparents with guided activities designed to introduce young children to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math concepts through materials that can be found around the home. These guided activities are part of our beautifully illustrated student readers.

In Malarkey and the Big Trap, readers will follow this crazy cat’s antics while he tries to build a better mousetrap. During the fun, readers will explore the behaviors of different components and how launch position can affect the whole process, similar to a pinball machine with ball traps and bumpers.

Malarkey was a lazy cat. But he was a hungry cat, too. To catch some mice, he built a trap. Will his trap work in time for dinner? Malarkey certainly hopes so-but the mice may have other plans of their own.

This wonderfully illustrated educational book, part of the award-winning A World In Motion program, teaches engineering principles to primary-age children through an imaginative and exciting story.
