Lesson 5: The Sweet Science
Students of any age can think critically about how to construct a fair investigation; help them practice this important skill by exploring the impact of different variables on the taste and texture of cupcakes. After your class selects a favorite recipe, don’t keep them all for yourself — use your cupcakes to form a friendship with another class and to teach them about what you’ve discovered about the science of baking!
Awesome…it’s what you do!!!
