Hairy Bear Big Book Building Challenge

We read the Big Book "Hairy Bear and the Door". In the story, Hairy Bear needs to build a new door for his house. He says "a house must have a door to stop the wind and the rain." Unfortunately he hits his hand with the hammer and can't build anymore! His wife arranges for his friends to pitch in and finish building it for him.

At the end of the week, we posed a building challenge to the Room 3 and 4 students. Can you build a door for Hairy Bear? There were just two parameters: it had to be strong enough to stand up against the wind and strong enough to stand up against the rain.

We saw so much creativity in the doors that were built!
