The student will assist
with measuring, adding and mixing the ingredients to make gingerbread dough.
Then they will roll out their gingerbread. Depending on the size
of the cookie cutter, decorations
many be added before or after baking. Decorations to add can be mini M&Ms,
raisins, currants, mini marshmallows, red hots, licorice whips, gumdrops,
frosting gels, and nuts. After munching on their people, they need
to graph whether or not they liked their cookies. Students also need to
tell which of their
five senses they used to make
their gingerbread people.
