Gingerbread Mouse House Read Aloud STEM Activity

Gingerbread Mouse House Read Aloud STEM Activity


Integrate STEM in your classroom this Christmas Season with this Gingerbread House STEM Challenge!

Students design and build their very own paper Gingerbread House for the Gingerbread Mouse! An excellent companion activity to the book Gingerbread Mouse by Katy Bratun.

Students plan, design, and execute their own ideas. After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't.

After students complete the gingerbread STEM project, they write a sequel to the book. The writing extension has worksheets for Character, Setting, Problem, Solution, and Events.

Aligns with the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).
