This is such an easy project to do! This is based upon 4 gingerbread stories, which are The Gingerbread Boy, The Gingerbread Girl, The Gingerbread Pirate, and The Gingerbread Baby. After reading the stories, children choose their favorite gingerbread friend and create it from paper or draw with crayons. I have included a gingerbread outline, gingerbread girl dress, and gingerbread pirate hat and pants templates.
The full color illustrations can be laminated and used as a visual pattern for students to follow as they create their character.
Student pages can be bound into a class book. I have included both a full color cover for the book and a plain cover that can be decorated by your students. I have added a lined blank page if you would like for your students to write a story about their character.
After creating the class book, students can graph their favorites and then use tally marks to record the results. I have included the recording sheets in both color and grayscale.
