Three little pigs and the recycled houses

Using the context of the well known story of the Three Little Pigs, pupils are introduced to the concept of the materials life cycle. A presentation aids learning about different building materials and how waste is created but can also be reduced. In the activity, pupils are invited to design recycled house ideas for the Three Little Pigs and to consider how the materials they choose for their designs could be reused or recycled.
