Need something sweet this holiday and Christmas season that is both educational and fun? This hands-on engaging activity implements writing, math, and art all in one lesson. Students will use their knowledge of math and writing, as well as their creativity, to build their perfect gingerbread house. Then, they will write a narrative story that includes the gingerbread house! #UE1dollar
Not only does this activity allow students to use their creativity, it uses a project based learning structure to show how these skills are used in a real life situation. Students will practice counting and using money, review area and perimeter skills, and practice narrative writing skills, all while designing, building a gingerbread house.
It gets even better: this activity requires no-prep! Just print and you are ready to go.
