Gingerbread Theme Unit

This was the perfect theme to welcome in the holidays! Although I learned that sometimes homeschooling is no different than any other kind of school in that December is a tough time to focus on schoolwork! So our workload was a bit light.

The highlight of and inspiration for our theme was a very cool exhibit on the Science of Gingerbread, which will be happening again this year, too.
We had fun comparing the different versions of the Gingerbread stories.
We also made a simple lapbook with printouts from the Gingerbread Thematic Unit,

smelled some yummy spices,learned a bit about Germany,and of course, we invited friends over to make a gingerbread house, which sadly collapsed before it was ever really finished!
