In January we were learning all about houses and homes. Here are some of the different things we did.
We read the story the Three Little Pigs and talked about all the things the pigs used to make their houses. Then we did an experiment in our class where we made the pig's houses out of Lego, straw, blocks and lollipop sticks. We predicted which houses the wolf might blow down and why that would happen. We pretended the hairdryer was the Big Bad Wolf and he tried to blow the houses down.
The construction site was very busy! We used lots of different building blocks from our classroom to make different types of houses and rooms. Some boys and girls even built a tower that could touch the ceiling!
We love Art in Junior Infants so we had to make some houses. We did junk art and made small houses for the pigs to live in using paper straws and lollipop sticks. Then we worked in our groups to make big houses, we couloured them in and cut and stuck the furniture into the right rooms.
We even had a Real Estate Agents in our class. We learned about all the different types of houses and had lots of fun buying and selling them!
