Gingerbread Man

Happy New Year Everyone!

Over break, I have been working on preparing for our Mitten Unit with centers and activities. But I wanted to post this update from before break about the Gingerbread Man Unit!

As part of our unit, we got together with our 4th grade reading buddies to complete this science experiment and answer the question - "What will happen when a gingerbread man is submerged in water?"

The 4th graders helped us write our our predictions and observations as the kindergarteners dictated to them.  

...and here is what happened!

After the gingerbread man cookie was submerged in water it sunk, expanded, broke, floated back to the top and lost its coloring! Try it at home and see if you get the same results!
