After reading several different versions of The Gingerbread Man, we created this Tree Map of Gingerbread Kids.
With the help of the cafeteria staff, we were able to bake a real gingerbread man. We used two boxes of the mix and covered him with raisins. (I reduced the amount of water called for on the box so the batter was thicker and I could form the gingerbread shape.) Even with the cafeteria staff promising to watch the oven for us, our gingerbread man managed to escape and run away.
There was only one thing we could do. So, we went on a gingerbread hunt around the elementary building looking for our gingerbread man. Can you guess where we found him? We found him hiding in our classroom!
What a yummy snack!
