8th Grade Art Students Complete Gingerbread Projects
8th grade yearlong art students participated in a Problem Based Learning Project from November to December of the 2019-2020 school year. Students chose their groups to work in and were instructed to create a gingerbread structure from a kit or by using graham crackers which needed to include a second structure as well as a matching landscape.
Groups or teams first learned the history of gingerbread to assist them in their gingerbread designs. Next teams made a blueprint, constructed their foundations, and decorated their gingerbread structures. The final step in this wonderfully delicious assignment was a gingerbread reception for parents and family.
