After reading The Three Little Pigs, students work on a STEM project to help build understanding of force and motion. They build and test each type of house. Here are a couple recording sheets that I made to go with the activity.
Get your kids' engaged with STEM! Read the story to them and allow them to find the problem. That's the challenge! Pass out materials (there is a suggested list for each grades K-4th), show/read challenge and the expectations, start a time (I use www.online-stopwatch.com), and let them explore, test
This Bundle is PERFECT for any teacher wanting to mix reading and STEM!
