We did many different math journals:
We did a science experiment to find out what would happen if the Gingerbread Man had crossed the river himself. This involved leaving a gingerbread cookie in water for an extended period of time and recording what happened:
We mixed up gingerbread dough, cut out gingerbread men, and added raisin eyes:
Then we cooked them up and ate them!
After eating we graphed which part of the Gingerbread cookie we bit first:
And then we described Gingerbread. I made this anchor chart and the kids worked with me on white boards to make their own:
To end the week we made this adorable Gingerbread Face art work to hang in the hallway! I think they turned out so cute:
