Gingerbread House

A Big Thank You
For all the candy, frosting, and graham crackers everyone brought in.  It made for a deliciously fun buffet to decorate with!  There are still a few bags of treats we might have to enjoy some January afternoon when the cold weather, test taking preparations, and hard work get to us!

Each student kept track of their costs on their house to try to stay under the pretend $30 budget. 

With frosting, a lot of candy, and patience we had a whole neighborhood of fun looking houses!
Always a fun activity, and certainly a lot of math.  Imagine each piece of candy having a price (in decimals) and adding them all up! 

Think ours were elaborate?  Check out the annual White House Gingerbread House!
