Teaching STEM Through Fairy Tales: The Three Little Pigs

I'll Huff and I'll Puff and I'll Blow Your House Down! In the story of the Three Little Pigs, kids follow the story as our endearing pigs build different houses to try to escape the Big Bad Wolf.  In this challenge, students help the three pigs by building a well-designed house that will keep them safe!

Paper or Styrofoam Plates (1 per student)
Cotton Balls (3 per student)
Painter's Tape (1 roll for the class)
Measuring tape (1+ for the class)
Other Found Objects
Hair Dryer or Fan

 After reading or reviewing the story for the Three Little Pigs, students work to design and build a house for their three pigs (cotton balls) that will withstand huffs and puffs from the Big Bad Wolf (hairdryer or fan).
