Gingerbread Tasting Graph
Take a sheet of butcher paper and draw a line down the middle vertically. At the top of one column draw a gingerbread man with a happy face. At the top of the other column draw a gingerbread man with a sad face. Give each child one Little Debbie gingerbread man cookie and ask him to write his name in the appropriate column to graph if he liked the cookie or not. Happy face indicates that they like the cookie and sad face indicates that they did not. When finished with the graph display it for the whole group and discuss how many children liked the cookie and how many did not. Use math language such as “more people liked the gingerbread cookie than did not”, “How many more people liked the cookie than those who didn’t?”, “Which column has less?” etc.
