The Gingerbread Man Goes Around the World
Learn how other countries and cultures tell stories using the Gingerbread Man theme.
Take a Survey and Make a Graph!

1. Mount a gingerbread cookie man template on the chalkboard Gingerbread Man Template.  Have the children identify and label the parts as follows:

  • Head
  • Right Arm
  • Left Arm
  • Right Leg
  • Left Leg

2. Pass out the Gingerbread Man cookies you made with your students.  Ask them to choose the part they would like to eat first.  Have them right it down or circle it on a labeled handout.

3. After or while the cookies are being eaten assist each child in taking the "Eating a Gingerbread Man Cookie Survey"
below, recording which cookie part they chose to eat first. (If possible, use your classroom computer with a projection screen so everyone can watch the results being recorded.)

4. To see the results of your survey comes to life view the bar graph before, during and after each recording.
