It's gingerbread time! At this time each year, fifth graders at Currier Memorial build gingerbread houses, and each year they get better. The little houses are constructed with graham crackers, which are attached with a dab of frosting to an empty milk carton. The milk cartons are not absolutely essential to this project, but provide a kind of insurance against an unexpected collapse in the decorating stage. Here are a couple examples of the sweet work happening on Monday. Families donated the sweets for the houses. The class collected, rinsed, and dried the milk cartons, and Mr. L cut cardboard bases.
