...can he blow the house down?
The Three Little Pigs for our fairy tale study. We divided into groups of 3 and used a different kind of material to build a house. Then, the big bad wolf (a cleverly disguised hairdryer) came and try to blow the house down! In my head, this activity was fun, and it's nice to know that it lived up to my expectations - the kids were so into it.
"smart" craft sticks, dominoes, gumdrops and toothpicks, and pipe cleaners. We had everything in our classroom and I'm sure there are loads of other great building materials out there.
