Gingerbread Advent Project

This year our class wanted to raise money for charity during Advent. We decided to build a beautiful gingerbread house to raffle off.

We made the gingerbread from scratch and cut out the church template we found on Pinterest. We also did some research on Pinterest to see what parts we wanted to add to the scenery.
The trees were made out of ice cream cones, icing, licorice and sprinkles. The sprinkles were placed around the tree in a pattern. Students had to create a pattern and show what their "core" pattern was.

We measured the perimeter of our house in centimeters and used Mini-Wheats to figure out the area. The perimeter of the roof tile was 91cm and the area was 81 Mini-Wheats squared.
