Gingerbread Play-dough

Yum, this gingerbread play-dough smells delicious. I added heaps of dried ginger, mixed spice, and cinnamon to our play-dough for the start of our second term.

Check out the children in action - rolling and cutting gingerbread men families, and enjoying the scent of the play-dough.

Our gingerbread play-dough supports our mathematics measurement unit (thanks NZmaths).

We watched this YouTube clip about the Gingerbread Man. 
As part of our length unit we have been using measurement words to compare and order gingerbread men. The children have been using words like; smaller, shorter, bigger, larger, taller, fatter, thinner, littlest, biggest, tiny, middle-sized, higher.
