Teachers and homeschoolers, this project is an amazing way to close out one calendar year or open a new year. Designing and building gingerbread houses creates an atmosphere of motivated engagement. The students feel the authenticity of the math challenges, and they’re excited to see their designs come to life. Students will make floor plans, calculate area and perimeter, and draw front and side view silhouettes. Then they build! Click this pin for more information and pics!
Math Mentor Text: Perimeter, Area, and Volume-great hook for a math lesson. Two activities using graph paper to teach area and perimeter. Hands-on activities to easily incorporate during your math block.
