We have been learning about matter in science. We started by looking at various states of matter...solids, liquids and gases.
We wanted to build a house that would hold up to the huffing and puffing of The Big Bad Wolf. So we learned about using a solid and a liquid to create a mortar and then experimented to see what the best mortar would be for a foundation. Once the foundations dried, the building process began! Teams used straw and tap and paper to build the strongest houses they could. Once they were done, the blow tests began...first with other teams blowing to see if the house would stand and then with a blow dryer for the super duper blow test! It was a great learning process for all!
