Straw, Bricks or Sticks?


We all know the story about the three little pigs and the big bad wolf, but have you ever read the story The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad PigWell, it really exists and that pig is a terror! At least in the beginning, but we don’t want to ruin it for you. You’ll just have to read it for yourself.

After hearing this story, we put our building skills work again. In groups of three, we randomly picked from the hat which material we would use to construct a house that could withstand the wind generated by a fan! The options were:

  • Sugar cubes and glue
  • Hay, yarn and glue
  • popsicle sticks, glue and yarn

Watch our video to see the results. We can tell you now, you might be surprised. We sure were!
