Isabel Collins’ second grade Samuel P. Morton Elementary School class built gingerbread houses for its last day of classes before winter break. To do so, her students had to use the skills they had learned thus far in science, technology, engineering and math.

A Franklin City Public Schools news release stated that the children used a thick vanilla frosting to bind the graham crackers to make floors, walls and roofs. Gumdrops and marshmallows decorated the candy houses.

At times the construction could be a sticky, tasty mess, but no one seemed to mind.
