This project is a great way to keep your class engaged just before Winter Break. It's a hands-on approach to reviewing geometry knowledge in a fun, educational way. It is necessary to collect donations of items from families, unless you are able to fund the project on your own. The document includes an outline of the project, time management, teacher tips, list of possible geometric figures to include, a gingerbread house planning page and a family letter explaining the project & the types of donations you will need. My students were always so excited about this project that I had no problem getting more than enough stuff from the families. This is probably one of my favorite projects and the kids LOVE it too!
