Math Activity Themes: Gingerbread Math

Gingerbread men and gingerbread houses enjoy special popularity around the holidays, but many of these gingerbread activities are timeless and complement literature titles that teachers use at the beginning of school or after the holidays. It's very easy to incorporate mathematics into a study of gingerbread men, and students will enjoy the data collection activities and games while learning math skills and deepening their understanding of important mathematical concepts.

Look through these Gingerbread Man Math activities and add some to your repertoire. Consider broadening the gingerbread math to include measurement, games and problem solving this year. 


  1. Just learned about your math activities and love them! Shared your Winter Math 2007 activities on my blog for my teachers today. Thanks for the great resources!

  2. I have aso just discovered Mathwire - it is fabulous.
    May I suggest a future topic "Rabbit maths" ... Perhaps you could use Emily Gravett's Picture Book "The Rabbit Problem" a very creative rendition of Fibonnaci's original scenario for the Fibonnaci sequence
