Introduction
Have you ever heard the story of the three little
pigs? Over the next few days, you will become one
of the characters from the story to complete some
activities. Click on the pigs below and listen to the
story before you begin your task!
  Task   Well, little pigs, the time has come
          for you to move out on your own.
          You must work together to build
          yourselves a new house. You will
               also need to classify the
         resources that you use in case the
          big, bad wolf comes back and you
           need to rebuild again! But you
          better hurry up and get started.
           That ol’ wolf is still out there!

            Uh oh, little pig. You’ve got a
            problem. It seems that your
           partner doesn’t want to build a
           new house. You must convince
         the other little pig that you need
           a house. Click on the books to
            read about wants and needs.
          Then write a letter to the other
         little pig to convince him that you
                  must have a house!




Pig #3
          Now that you’ve convinced
         the other little pig that you
          need a house, it’s time to
           become a producer pig!
          What’s that you say? You
         don’t know what a producer
         is? Well, you’d better find
         out! Click on the T.V. below
         and watch to find out what
                a producer is!




Pig #3
                Now try this!
         Your next step is to choose
          the resources you’ll need
           to produce your house.
         What are resources?!? Oh
           my! Click on the books
         below and read to find out
         about the different types
           of resources. But you’d
           better hurry! I think I
         heard the wolf huffing and
               puffing outside!



Pig #3
  Uh oh, little piggies! I think I see
that ol’ wolf lurking outside. It’s time
      to get busy building! Use the
    resources that are in the box to
produce your house! Be sure to use at
least one capital, one natural, and one
 human resource to build your house.
 After you finish building your house,
 click on the wolf below to complete a
     factors of production chart to
  classify the resources you used. Be
 sure to do a good job on your house.
That big, bad wolf can really huff and
                  puff!
Conclusion
             Great job, little pigs!
             Now hurry home
             before the big, bad
             wolf sees you!

Resources
Producers make goods or provide services. They use
many things to make their products. Some of these
things are called resources. Resources can be placed
into three groups: natural, human, and capital
resources.

Natural Resources
Natural Resources are those things
found in and on the earth, such as
water, oil, and sunlight.
Capital Resources
Capital resources are tools, equipment, and
buildings we use to help produce things. Capital
resources are used over and over without
being used up, such as trucks, computers, cash
registers, desks, and chairs.
Human Resources
Human resources are people who work, like
teachers, doctors, truck drivers, and sales
clerks.
