Three Billy Goats Gruff Challenge
For the month of April our Aistear theme was 'Fanatsy'. We read a lot of traditional fairy tale stories and one of them was Three Billy Goats Gruff. During Aistear time the children worked in groups and where given the challenge of building a bridge strong enough for all three goats to cross at once - and high enough to stay above the troll. There were three parts: 1. Plan (draw out the design) 2. Create (using only the materials provided) and 3. Test (does the bridge hold all three goats and is it high enough for the troll to fit under?). Each group came up with a different design and some needed some minor changes, but all groups successfully completed the challenge. The children had great fun. Have a look at the pictures below!
