Engineering for the Three Little Pigs

This online resource details a hands-on activity demonstrating the importance of using different types of building materials for different types of buildings. 

In this activity the students build three different sand castles and test them for strength and resistance to weathering. They can then discuss how the buildings are different and what engineers need to think about when choosing the rocks, soils and minerals used for construction.
