The Three Little Pigs Houses Investigation

In science this week we investigated the strength of various materials by building houses for the three little pigs. The children discussed the properties of the materials we had to use, which were hay, plastic straws and wooden bricks, and then made predictions about which houses would be the strongest. We didn’t have a Big Bad Wolf to blow our houses down so we used a hairdryer instead! Ask your child about how strong the houses were and whether they were correct with their predictions.
