As part of our topic work in Science we have been investigating buildings and materials.   During Literacy we have studied the Three Little Pig story and decided to try and build a house to keep Froggie safe.

The house had to stand alone, be wind proof and water proof.  Making and testing our houses was the fun part.

First we worked as a team to build our houses. 

Then we tried to blow our houses down.

All the houses survived our attempts to blow them down.

Then came the rain!  Our houses were not as strong as we had thought.

 

Team 1 and Team 3 were the strongest buildings and survived all three tests.

What materials would you use to build a house?

Which materials would make your house water proof?
