Here's a great idea for a healthy snack and a free printable for consumption while reading The Three Little Pigs or The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. The snack consists of the "building materials" that the three little pigs might use, and suggests that students should explore creating a building before eating them.

tag(s): literacy (112), nutrition (167), preK (289), printables (42)

In the Classroom

Use this cute idea as a follow-up after reading The Three Little Pigs or The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. Be sure to take pictures of the "structures" each student made (or a group of students made) to post on your web page. With older students, take this a step further and enhance learning by uploading the pictures (or have students learn to upload them) to a photo editing tool that creates talking animations from a photo or other image such as Blabberize, reviewed here, to explain their structure.
