Cupcake Creator Template

Cupcake Creator Template
View Curriculum Codes   

This activity is an extension of the Cupcake Creator activity, where students research possible popular cupcake flavour combinations while developing a new cupcake. In it, students colour a template cupcake and add some toppings before cutting them out and presenting them.

This worksheet is a part of a larger unit designed for Year 4 that helps students develop their statistical investigation skills by walking them through the necessary stages to plan, conduct and analyse a statistical investigation and then communicate their findings.
