    Hi,
    I do a week long gingerbread unit. On the first day we make a giant gingerbread man. Then we go back to our room and read one of the versions of the gingerbread man. We discuss that we hope this does not happen to our gingerbread man(in the mean time I have a teacher take the gingerbread man out of the oven and cover it and place it in the freezer). We start to find clues around the school where our gingerbread man has been. We smell him too. (I get the staff to spray cinnamon air freshener...lol). Every day we write in our journal our predictions. One night I send homework. They have to write whether or not they have seen the gingerbread at home. The really get into it. On the last day we find the gingerbread man and we celebrate. We eat him. lol. We incorporate other activities throughout the week. Math, language arts, etc.
    hope this helps.
