Cupcake War History, How Sweet it Was

It has been a difficult winter to teach.  We missed 9 days of school after Christmas break.  Then the days we were at school were so cold the kids did not get outside recess.  Which after weeks of being cooped up inside they were becoming restless and picking at each other.
I tried to think of a good lesson for them that would be fun.

Then old march rolls around and the beginning is dr. Seuss' birthday.  So what did I teach? Dr. Suess to 6th graders, maybe a story , but we did the history of cake.  Yep, a week of learning about cake and leaving agents and ingredients.  We ended the week with a Dr. Seuss themed cupcake war.
That sixth grade team who so loves their students
Gathered in Crawford classroom to judge the loot

Cat in the hat,

Green Eggs and ham,

Red fish, blue fish

The lorax, Horton, more fish, even thing 1 and thing 2,

....so many cupcakes, oh what
To do?
Pass them out to others, that's who.

Well, we munched and we snacked.
We joked and we learned.
We found out that we can have fun in the winter blahs.
When we take time to have fun and have some ha has.

We had prizes and giggles, and winners

Oh what a fun day in Crawford's class.


  1. This is so fun! You made me smile and wish I had had a teacher like you! Such a cool idea!

  2. Great idea! I liked the red fish, blue fish one. It looked a bit more like jell-o than cupcakes, but very, very cute! I still remember things that some of my teachers did to make lessons fun, and I'm sure your kiddos will long remember this one. :)

  3. What a fun…and yummy…idea!
