Product Description
The “Designing & Constructing a Gingerbread House” project utilizes teamwork and Sketchup (free CAD software download) to allow students to design and build a gingerbread house to scale. Students work individually to create a scale model drawing of a gingerbread house using Sketchup (CAD) and then brainstorm with their team to determine the best design to build from provided materials with the goal of building the most attractive and creative gingerbread house. Two options are given for building the actual house from recycled materials or from actual edible gingerbread. Finally, they reflect on their learning and the dynamics of their team to complete the project. The project was created for grades 7-8 but could easily be adapted for younger or older students.
