Huff and Puff

While almost half of our class was at home huffing and puffing from an awful cold, friends in room 5 were doing their own form of huffing and puffing. This week we read the classic version of "The Three Little Pigs" and the not so well known tale of "The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig." On Tuesday the children participated in a Huff and Puff experiment where they had to predict how many huffs (and puffs) it would take to blow a lego, marble and a piece of tissue across the table (see video below). On Friday the children constructed towers that had to withstand my huffing and puffing. Each child's structure had to use at least 10 objects and could only be one foot high. I was quite impressed by their structures (and pretty lightheaded as well).
