One of our investigations lead us to design and build a house that would be strong enough to keep out the BIG, BAD WOLF (after he huffed and puffed) by using a range of materials. We used wood, plastic, paper and cardboard straws. After making our houses, we made predictions about what would happen. Would our houses be strong enough to keep out the wolf? What material was the best/ strongest? Which material was still standing?
