With this activity, students will learn to write a set of directions. Students will decorate a blank Gingerbread Man and write a set of directions explaining how they decorated their man. The set of directions will be given to a classmate to see if they can reproduce the Gingerbread Man onto another blank template. Students will evaluate their peers on their ability to write a clear set of directions.
- Included in this file are: blank Gingerbread Man templates, materials & directions “recipe” form, and peer evaluation surveys. This is a great writing activity for the upcoming holiday season.
- Our students have completed these exchanges throughout the school year (The Great Pumpkin Exchange, Super Snowman Exchange, etc.) Our students enjoy these exchanges and their ability to write a set of directions has greatly improved! We have also used these exchanges for hall displays. Another great tip is to pair with another classroom to complete this activity. The students love it!
