The Three Little Pigs is a classic tale that children have loved for ages. The story invites them on a journey with, just as the name suggests, three little pigs who meet a big bad wolf as they try to build sturdy houses, often times unsuccessfully. The story teaches that hard work and dedication pay off, and taking the easy way isn’t always the best option. Children get to bring this story to life, from lessons on point of view, architectural vocabulary, scavenger hunts, comparing and contrasting other versions of the story, along with designing and building their very own house!
