This assignment is a fun -- and tasty! -- way to apply math standards to a real world task, and is a great opportunity to review geometry and measurement before winter break! The assignment guides students to plan a gingerbread house by creating a blueprint on graph paper. Students must to calculate the area and perimeter of two-dimensional shapes, construct two-dimensional shapes on graph paper, and use proportions to scale measurements of two-dimensional shapes. Each piece of the final gingerbread house blueprint will be precisely measured and calculated, giving students a lot of practice in this skills while also giving them a fun goal to work towards.
