Cupcake Contraction Sort. Students can use this activity as an opportunity to learn what exactly contractions are. Art is used through choosing colors (warm/cool) to make their cupcake and designing it as they choose. Along with art students learn language arts and reading to learn what exactly each contraction is and using art to learn them. Grades 3rd to 5th can use this fun art activity.
