Gingerbread Man Challenge

students working on challenge Ms. Flavin's Kindergarten class and Mr. Stansberry's 5th grade classes got together to do the Gingerbread Man Challenge. STEAM Buddies worked on the challenge using various materials including toothpicks, small marshmallows, construction paper and a gingerbread man. Using the Engineering Design Process, students created a way for the gingerbread man to cross the "river" without getting wet or eaten by the fox. How would you have designed your raft or boat? What could you have done differently? Enjoy these photos!
