The Three Little Pigs …and a little STEM
Structural and Materials Engineering to the Rescue
The Three Pigs are trying their best to build a house that will protect them from the Big Bad Wolf. He has been huffing and puffing all over the neighborhood and they know they will be in a heap of trouble if they do not figure out how to build a sturdy house. Using a wide variety of materials and working in groups, students will design and build a house that will not only hold a pig (otherwise known as an eraser) but also will survive a blast of air from the Big Bad Wolf (otherwise knows as a blow dryer).
This enchanted engineering packet includes student handouts, a rubric, student role cards, an engineering design poster, and teacher notes. Using simple materials we have integrated engineering into a favorite fairy tale that promotes problem solving and collaboration.
