Are you looking to integrate math into your gingerbread activities? This glyph and graphing kit is the perfect addition to your holiday activities or gingerbread man unit.

Students first make a gingerbread man glyph to generate their data. In the activities that follow they interpret, organize, represent, and analyze that data by making a class graph, drawing picture graphs and bar graphs, interpreting a friend’s glyph, and discussing the data with graph chat cards.
The graph chat cards have students solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problems using the information in the class graph.

Aligned to measurement and data standards for first and second grade, the 5 different lesson activities can be paced from 1-3 days. The included lesson plan, pacing guide, and multiple versions of the student pages make it so easy to plan, prep, AND differentiate! It’s a perfect project for that last day before the holiday break or as a holiday math party!
