Where In The World Is The Gingerbread Man?
Next week I will introduce my class to The Gingerbread Man by reading the story and showing them an adorable plush Gingerbread Man. The next day when they come to school he will be gone, but will leave a note saying that he is off on a world tour! He will visit 7 countries before returning to America and joining in our "Welcome Back Gingerbread Man" party! He will send a postcard and a project or something special from each place he visits. We chose most of the countries based on the families we have in my class and my PM partner's class. Most of the projects will be based on some type of holiday that is celebrated in the winter.
I have created a map of his travels so the kinders can keep track of where he has gone. They will draw a line from the country's name to the Gingerbread Man's picture. If this sounds like fun and will fit into your lesson plans, click on the picture for a freebie! If you will be visiting different countries, just let me know and I can send you a modified map. Please leave me a comment if you download this!
