Junior Infants Science Week 2013

In Junior Infants we listened to the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ during science week. We decided to do an experiment to check the materials that the houses in the story were made from. We also made houses using potatoes and paint.

Our experiment
What material is the strongest?

What we did:
We built three houses using

  • Straw
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Blocks

We checked which material was the strongest by blowing the houses down.

Our result:
The house make with blocks was the strongest. The house made with straws was the weakest.
