Gingerbread Man Cookie Graph

What a fun way to teach graphing! We invited each of our children to enjoy a little gingerbread snack and here is what happened!
 We gave each of our kids a gingerbread cookie. Pepperidge Farms has these around the holidays! After giving them each of cookie, we said, “One, two, three bite.” They each took one bite and put the cookie back on their plate.
We gave each child a paper cut out of a gingerbread man and a pair of scissors. Using the scissors, they cut off the part the ate during their first bite. After eating the rest of their cookie, we made a graph to show which part we ate first.  One at a time, each child placed their paper cut out on the graph.
Once all of them were there, we wrote our analysis. 
Isn't this fun? We saved all of the cut out parts!
Pin It!

Great graph! I love the analysis part and the shape of it! I will be doing this in my room in a week. So much fun!

Dear Kim,
We do this every year and the kids love it so much. Your display is fabulous. I think it is so visual for little ones. The only other thing I add to this is an individual data sheet the kids fill in and we all do it together.
Have a wonderful holiday with your family.
