Students will help Susan Sugar, in this multistep story problem, purchase her ingredients, chose the right measurements, and be ready for the cake baking contest on time.
There are 8 problems embedded within the story that involve measurement, addition, subtraction, and time. An answer key is included.
This is a good resource to challenge early finishers or use as a fun whole class review. I did this whole class with my recently certified gifted second graders,but this can be used in other grades more independently as well.
A page is also provided for students to illustrate their award winning cake and create a problem of their own.
