Students begin by picking different elements of a cupcake (story elements) that they want to build.
They will begin with a cupcake liner which lists characters to be used in their creative story.
Next, students choose the cake (chocolate or vanilla) to be given a problem they will write about.
Last, a frosting flavor is chosen to give the story setting place.
An optional topper is offered for differentiation which adds to the setting by giving the time in which the story takes place.
Now the fun begins! With the given setting, characters, and problem students begin to create their own story. Using character traits and setting, how will the characters solve the problem? Having an astronaut in space may be helpful, but how is a frog going to help you get gas in your car?
With over 6,000 different options, this activity can be done time and time again. Included are story writing papers for students. Such a fun activity for students to share with one another and their families!
