    Hello There!
    This request is similar to one posted previously this month. I am also in need of 10 willing participants from different states. The project will consist of each participating class to make 10 paper gingerbread men, depicting facts about the area or state that you live in. I will include a link at the end of this email to a site that has a similar project. This shows examples of gingerbread men they had received while doing their project. Then, those 10 will be sent out, one to each of the participating schools from all around the US. This will teach the students many different skills including geography, map skills, writing and social studies. A bulletin board can be made with a map and when the gingerbread men are received, a map marker can be placed from that school. We will need 9 schools to participate, since you wouldn't send one to your own school. If you are interested all I will need from you is your school address, and your name, so that I can give a list of school names to all participants. If you are not interested, please share this idea with another First grade teacher. I would like to get this project started right after Thanksgiving, so that the gingerbread men can be mailed out by December 10th. If you are interested please email me back by November 29th. This will allow for other classes to be contacted if you cannot participate. Here is the link to the similar project to give you a better idea. http://www.geocities.com/ljacoby_2000/flatginger.html
    Thank you,
