Integrate STEM in your classroom this Christmas Season with this Gingerbread STEM Challenge!
Students design and build their very own Gumdrop Bridge! An excellent companion activity to the book The Gingerbread Boy by Richard Egielski.
Students plan, design, and execute their own ideas. After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't.
After students complete the gingerbread STEM project, they write a new ending to The Gingerbread Boy.
