Have some fun with your kiddos this holiday season by creating a Merry Measurement Gingerbread village in your classroom. This craftivity allows students to practice their measurement skills by creating their own Gingerbread house. It also makes for an awesome bulletin board display.
* The crafitvity is set up so that it can be adapted to your classes needs. I personally have my students measure the height of each part of their gingerbread house to the nearest inch and half inch. They write their measurements right on the house. However, it can easily be adapted to have students measure to the nearest centimeter or inch.
*Included in this craft:
* Teacher Notes & Directions
*Measurements of Items to the nearest inch and half inch
* 4 different Gingerbread house templates
* Matching Measurement Writing Templates for each house (These are to use if you prefer for the students not to write their measurements directly onto their houses.)
* Gingerbread house decorations including : peppermint sticks, peppermint candies, small circular candies, gumdrops, candy canes, wrapped candy pieces, wreaths, bows, and 2 lollipop
templates. The decorations are set up with multiples on pages to save you paper and ink when printing!
* 3 different Gingerbread people templates
* Christmas Tree template
*Snowman template (My class used the trees, gingerbread people, and snowmen to decorate our completed village on the bulletin board).
***BONUS: I've also included matching blank writing templates that can attach to each house design. This basically creates a whole new craftivity for you to use. You can have students write to any prompt with these templates!
