First Graders Constructing  Gingerbread Houses! The First grade classes built Gingerbread Houses today. They did this as they learned about construction and what type of construction makes the best gingerbread house. They first started with experiments done in the classroom. Then the students drew plans for their own gingerbread houses. Today they got the opportunity to build their houses with their parents and or their grandparents!  They had a great time and learned a lot about construction.
