For students in Mrs. Cook's Kindergarten class, America is a giant gingerbread house.
Nichols' Kindergartners participated in a gingerbread people exchange that has brought them over 30 gingerbread people decorated with details of their hometowns and states from around the country.
The gingerbread people were hung up in the hallway where a Gingerbread PowerPoint presentation played nearby.
Students decorated their Connecticut gingerbread man with a UCONN hat, holding a PEZ dispenser in one hand and a Wiffle Ball in the other. There was a cheeseburger in his stomach. Other details included the state flag, state flower (Mountain Laurel) and state bird (American Robin).
