The whole week we read several different gingerbread stories and we discussed differences and similarities in the stories.  We read Gingerbread Man and Gingerbread Boy and filled out a Venn Diagram to compare and contrast the different characters of the stories.

 

On Thursday we read Gingerbread Baby and discussed how the ending is different where the Gingerbread Baby doesn’t get eaten but has a house built for him by Matti.  Then we created houses for our own gingerbread babies.  You can buy an updated version of this activity here.
