The Gingerbread Man made his triumphant return to my classroom this year (he seems to do that every year!!). This year however, he taught us about customs and celebrations that happened around the world instead of focusing on Christmas-y traditions everywhere he went. He also brought along a folk or fairy tale and a CD of music from that area.
Here are a few pictures of our bulletin board tracking his travels:
Everywhere he traveled, he sent us a letter and several pictures from each location. This is what is posted on our bulletin board. The kids would come out in the hallway everyday with me and we would locate the country on the map and then re-visit what we had learned. 🙂
