This download contains two activity sheets for your students – one that asks them to build a house that will keep a piggy safe and one that asks them to design a house for a piggy that the wolf will love. The activity sheets ask students to think about the properties of the materials they choose for the houses and how those properties help meet the specifications outlined by the piggy and by the wolf.
In my own classroom, I use this activity during my science unit on properties of materials. I start this activity by reading aloud of a version of the “The Little Pigs.” I especially enjoy The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith. I hope that you and your students will enjoy this fun activity!
