The 5-year-old kindergarten classes at Oconto Falls Elementary School recently made large gingerbread men to decorate and eat as they learned about story structure and characters.

But before the students could eat the sweet treats, the cookies ran away and were spotted all over school in different classrooms! As the kindergarten students looked for the runaway cookies, they read numerous versions of the classic story “The Gingerbre​​ad Man”​ and compared how the stories were the same and different.

Finally on Dec. 13, Officer Ron Ripley from the Oconto County Sheriff’s Department was able to help capture the cookies so they could be returned to their correct classes and enjoyed by all.
