A Gingerbread Town is Built!

A "note" from Mrs. Getchell!

I think our greatest accomplishment over the past few weeks must be our glorious Gingerbread Town! As we finished our unit on Maps and Globes, I noticed the class was very interested in models. I thought a fun way to wrap up the unit would be to create our own town. Before vacation, students collected milk cartons to paint and decorate. They labeled their buildings and decided where they should be. The kids were so creative! They even created streetlights and ponds and walkways to add more detail. Our town is proudly on display in the classroom for all to see and enjoy!
