Everyone knows the famous story of “The Gingerbread Man.” This student-led mini-unit includes both paper and digital resources to tie in 21st century learning with a fun holiday theme.
Teacher Note: How to Use & Framework for the Unit
Letter from the Gingerbread Man
Catch the Gingerbread Man Scavenger Hunt (Using QR Codes OR Printables)
Gingerbread Missing Posters
Gingerbread Write the Room
Don’t Catch the Gingerbread Man Letter/Sound ID Card Game
Gingerbread Hunt Retelling Booklet
What Will You Need to Prep?:
All you need to do is decide which activities you want to use, then print and go. You can use my suggested framework or pick and choose which activities students do. To prepare the scavenger hunt, you'll print either the QR Code clues or the written clues and hang them in the designated areas of your school (classroom, cafeteria, library, office).
How Does This Incorporate Academic Standards?
The focus of this mini-unit is for students to be guiding what happens, while you facilitate. After learning about the Gingerbread Man's exciting stories, students will practice comprehension through retelling. After receiving the Gingerbread Man's letter, students will begin to lead the mini-unit by asking questions to help find the Gingerbread Man and making a plan to let the school know that they are looking for him (using flyers). Students will practice both retelling and writing skills when they create a booklet that tells about their class Gingerbread Hunt.
2 extra games have been included, just to enjoy this theme a little more :) --> A Gingerbread Write the Room AND a "Don't Catch the Gingerbread Man" game.
