Digital Learning Workshop | Ages 3-8 | Online

Live, Dynamic & Interactive!

Learn about folktales and how cultures around the world tell the same story in different ways by examining the story of The Gingerbread Boy through pictures and movement exercises. Versions of the story are compared from selected books, including Jan Brett’s Gingerbread Baby, Ying Chang Compestine’s The Runaway Rice Cake, Sandi Takayama’s The Musubi Man, and more. Explore where the ingredients in gingerbread come from and how they come together to be delicious, and watch The Gingerbread Boy come to life through a brilliantly-colored shadow puppet short film.

You will receive a study guide containing the puppet template to print and cut out along with a list of puppet-making materials each student will need to build the puppet during the workshop.

These materials are easy-to-find, low-cost items that can often be found in the classroom. The study guide also includes optional classroom activities you can choose to incorporate into your lesson plan either before or after seeing the program. (These optional classroom activities are different from the activities included by our instructor in the virtual program.) Additional study guide contents include suggested online and library resources regarding the program topic and a list of academic standards supported by this program.
