Legendary Lands and Creatures

Wild Wonders

(Gasp!) Did someone say Bigfoot?! Many have hunted for Bigfoot or the Yeti of the Himalayas for years and insist that they've witnessed these secretive creatures. Some even claim to have evidence that they exist. Today, we'll examine footprints and hear first-person accounts of these sightings to determine for ourselves what's in the woods. Let's get hairy!

There have been so many claimed sightings of Bigfoot and Yeti over the years, but no one has ever caught one (not that we know of, at least). Today, you get to try your hand at designing a Bigfoot trap that might finally do the trick.


Engineering Your Trap

To create your Bigfoot trap, you're going to need to think like an engineer. But what does that even mean? Grab a piece of paper and a pencil and start with a crash course on engineering.


Sketch Your Bigfoot Trap

Now that you're thinking like an engineer, get ready to sketch your ideal "trap" for Bigfoot or a Yeti. If you want some inspiration, click here to see one that was built in Oregon in 1974. Remember, engineers follow these four steps to solve problems: Ask, imagine, create, improve. Our problem is that no one has proof that Bigfoot or Yetis exist, and nobody's had any luck catching them!

Pro tip: Think about what might attract a Bigfoot and how to keep him in place. Got something great? Share it with us on Instagram or via email!


Make Tracks to Your Legend Map

Bigfoot and Yetis, oh my! We only have one more day left of mythical creatures, and your own legend should be nearly complete. You may want to create space on your poster board for Bigfoot and draw the setting for your world around it, or you may want to show Bigfoot in his habitat on a separate piece of paper. It's up to you! Is there enough room in your legendary world for these creatures?
