GIngerbread raft man?

In Lerryn class we have been working on the Gingerbread Man story as part of our Food and Festivals topic. We wondered if he could have built a raft to cross the stream, to save him from the fox.

We measured rafts made with straws cut to 5cm and 10cm lengths, and then added weights to see how many grams they could carry before they sank. We discovered that The Gingerbread Man would have to have been very light.

We did some brilliant learning on measures!
