Gingerbread Engineers

Our class has been reading different versions of The Gingerbread Man story. The students get so animated at the end when the fox invites the gingerbread man to jump on his back in order to get across the river. At this point they could tell you the story from memory.

Today we looked at several pictures of fancy gingerbread houses. Then we made blueprints to build our own.  First we set a criteria of things that all good gingerbread houses should have.
Then we drew our plan and decided what kind of materials we would use.

In the afternoon we moved all of the furniture out of the way and built the most amazing gingerbread houses!
