It’s been a little over a week since we built an entire community! I am so proud of the way this crew worked together to make decisions and build the town and houses. I loved seeing their creative minds at work! Here are some fun pictures.
How did we prepare to build a whole town? We read a LOT of gingerbread stories. This allowed for a lot of text to text connections as we compared stories. Their favorite books were ones that the Main Gingerbread character did NOT get eaten at the end of the story. They decided to add a jail in the town for the fox after seeing that sneaky character show up again and again! We charted information from each of the Gingerbread stories.
Before construction started I gave them a wrapping lesson to help them as they created the town. They did an impressive job!
