Gingerbread House Math Project Engages Students

Students with gingerbread house math project

As part of a hands-on learning math project, 5th and 6th grade students completed gingerbread houses while using a Google Slide to document their calculations, share their progress through photos and reflect on their work.

“Students had to measure the house they constructed to find the total surface area, build an array on their roof and create equivalent ratios for their sidewalks, among other math-related topics,” explained Teacher Stacey Connor.
