Do you need something engaging to keep kids excited and FOCUSED when it's getting close to the jolly 'ol man's arrival? If you do, this is for you!
This fun project allows students to plan a gingerbread house for the gingerbread man that survived being chased out of the oven!
Students plan what their house needs, draw a sketch, and then the real work happens! Students only have $10 to buy everything they need for their house! They use a pricing sheet to determine how many of each item they need, how much it costs, and how much they have left to spend!
When they're done, they get to draw (and color!) their gingerbread house based on what they bought!
Oh, what fun!
You can end the project with a letter to the gingerbread man telling him what his house looks like, or with a description (writing paper included).
