Gingerbread Ethics

I asked the kids to write about whether it was right or wrong that the Gingerbreads all ran away. Of course, I am really encouraging them to get into the "why" of it all but it's challenging for them.

It is wrong to eat the gingerbread girl because it's make-believe.

It's right because they almost ate the tortilla.

It is right to run away because the gingerbread girl did not want to get eaten.

It is right because if you eat it won't be alive. It is wrong to talk to strangers (ie the fox).
