Hey y'all! Halloween is officially over and the holiday season has begun! Cue the jingle bells! I love this time of year so much that I put together a little Gingerbread STEAM unit

If you're not familiar with these how science centers are set up, you can check out the original post here

We start off on Monday by reading The Gingerbread Man and finding out which liquid dissolves a gingerbread cookie the fastest.

Tuesday through Thursday, we go to six different science stations. 

Students explore gingerbread with their five senses and measure things in the room using non-standard measurement.

They build a hideout for the gingerbread man, a raft to get him across the river, and a catapult to sail him flying over the river.

On Friday, we make gingerbread play dough and decorate our gingerbread people. 

It's a simple and fun way to keep the kids learning and engaged during the craziness of the holidays. You can check out the whole unit here.

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for more science units coming soon. Have a wonderful day!
