The Three Little Pigs Meet The Big Bad Blowdryer

As part of our Structures Unit, the students were divided into groups of two or three to design a house to keep a little pig safe when the Big Bad Blowdryer came for a visit. Please watch this short Photopeach Slideshow with your child and talk about the different houses and why they worked in protecting each little pig. The students will use their newfound design knowledge to create their park structures on Friday. They can't wait!

Hope you enjoy this slideshow as much as the students enjoyed the designing and building process! Who knew school could be so much fun?!?!

We did this activity in our Grade One class and the kids had a blast. Thanks for sharing the FANTASTIC idea!!!I am sending you the link for a paperbag wolf puppet template that I put on the blowdryer to make it even more fun.

Thanks for the link to the puppet! I love this extension. I'll have to try this out this year with my Grade 1's. I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed the activity, Christine!
