These visuals are great for getting the point across to students about what is expected on any given assignment. Post them in the classroom and explain what a "sundae" looks like (What's a level 1, 2, 3 or 4? - as per the rubric) for the assignment before sending them off to complete it. When used together with the rubric, this visual really helps the students understand how it is necessary to build on each expectation in order to achieve the standard. Leaving out any part (the spoon, the ice cream, etc.) will not help them achieve the "sundae". Furthermore, trying to add the sprinkles or the chocolate sauce (the extras for a level 4) makes no sense until you have achieved the standard - a Sundae!
Now added, clipart of the different sundaes (in colour and black and white) to be used in rubrics, etc.
