STEM Lesson: The Three Little Pigs

Today, children in Senior Infants participated in lessons using a thematic approach. Integration of subjects included English, Science, Maths, Geography, Visual Art, Drama and Aistear. Children were highly engaged and enjoyed the lesson.

Children investigated what material of house (from the story ‘The Three Little Pigs) was the strongest. Children made houses using cocktail sticks and jelly (stick house), straws and elastic bands (straw house), and Lego (bricks). Children worked in pairs making the houses. Using a hairdryer (wolf), children explored if the houses were strong enough to remain standing.
