Nursery Students Experiment with the Wind Tunnel at NPS

Nursery has been studying the story of The Three Little Pigs. The students created three different houses of straw, sticks and bricks, made pig and wolf masks, cooked delicious pig pancakes and read alternative versions such as "The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig."

This week they tied in a science lesson by experimenting with the wind tunnel.


  • Straw
  • Sticks
  • Plastic Bricks
  • Wind Tunnel

Using the wind tunnel, the children took turns placing either straw, sticks, or a brick into the end of the tunnel to see if the power of the fan could blow these materials. They concluded that the Wolf must have had mighty strong breath to huff and puff some of those houses down!
