Our class is participating in a Gingerbread Man Exchange with about 40 classrooms from around the USA and Australia. Last week we made gingerbread men to represent our hometown and state. If you look closely you can see that the men are holding a Heath candy bar and an Illinois state flag. We also made the shirts to represent the University of Illinois. We are mailing them along with a letter about our school to our new friends and look forward to hearing from lots of other schools and getting their gingerbread men. As we get them we will add them to a bulletin board and map in our classroom.
