The Three Little Pigs

This resource provides an introductory video with a STEM Ambassador reading the story of The Three Little Pigs and a follow-on activity for children to carry out. In this activity children work like engineers in order to help the three little pigs build a house that protects them from the wolf. They design and build their houses then test how their designs withstand the wolf’s puff!  They think about how they can strengthen their designs and work together to improve them. They then share what they have done with each other and compare their different models. This activity links well with D&T and allows children to also explore the science of the properties of materials.  

This activity has been provided by STEMFirst, with the video story provided by BAE systems.
