It's Grandma's birthday again so it's time to bake another cake with Max and Ruby. But you need to hurry! Her party is tonight!
This STEAM activity is perfect for Grades K-2 and encourages students to be creative, while adhering to Grandma's "likes" and other constraints. This one is sure to delight lovers of Bunny Cakes who have dreamed of baking a cake with Silver Stars and Red Hot Marshmallow Squirters.
Students will collaborate to plan out their "Cake Recipe" and create a grocery list of needed supplies. Then, they will visit Grocer's Grocery Store to buy all the items on their list, making sure they stay within their $10 Bunny Money budget. Finally, students will use their purchased materials to make Grandma the best birthday cake she has ever seen!
*2 versions are included for easy differentiation.*
The overall design of this activity is open-ended so many different cake designs can solve the challenge. Students are able to use any of the available materials to design and construct a birthday cake, limited only by their imagination (and their $10 Bunny Money budget!)
