This resource goes along with the Three Little Pigs. The students are able to make the houses using the different materials the pigs use throughout the story. This resource is also good for incorporating a discussion of the texture of each of the houses.
For my students, I typically go on a nature walk outside to find sticks and straw so they can get a real feel for the materials and then we glue those materials onto the houses I've provided. I also use red legos to glue on for the brick house, however, using the pictures I've provided works well too!
