Grades 3-5 Strong Homes

Using recycled materials from your home, design a house that can withstand the weather elements: wind (use a fan), rain (spray bottle or cup of water), and snow (let ice melt on the top of your home). You can use a casserole dish or cake pan to place your house in to see if it could withstand a flash flood.
