STEM and The Gingerbread Man

Before we went on Winter Break, we tried to figure out ways that we could help the Gingerbread Man get across the river.  I put out several different (simple!) materials that I already had in my classroom and let my students go to town.


-popsicle sticks

-masking tape

-paint samples


-construction paper

-plastic cups


Here’s what they came up with!! I was IMPRESSED!! We had everything from simple suspension bridges to gondolas that would take the gingerbread man high up in the sky to get across the river!
