Product Description

Looking for a fun way to help reinforce Area & Perimeter for your students?

My students LOVED planning and executing their gingerbread houses as a way to show what they knew about Area & Perimeter. I read them the included Ebook to give them a bit of historical background on gingerbread and then introduced the project to them. They were so excited to start planning and doing the Math!

We started by exploring the area & perimeter of a full graham cracker, a half, and a quarter. After that students were able to plan out their floor plan. Next, they calculated the area & perimeter of their floor plan. and conceptualized their walls & roof. Then students found the total area & perimeter of all portions and used this to calculate how many graham crackers they needed.

I used signup genius to have parents sign up for supplies (graham crackers, foil for bases, powdered sugar for making the royal icing, assorted candy, etc.), so there was minimal purchasing/prep on my end.

*Note: printing it as actual size will make the graham cracker exploration page grid an actual 1-inch by 1-inch grid
