Cupcake Critique




Cupcake Art Critique is an easy-to-use peer feedback activity that will have your students engaged and excited to share their thoughts on each other’s artwork. The cake area of the printable worksheet prompts students to provide critical feedback on the creative elements of the artwork, while the frosting area encourages them to offer positive and uplifting comments.

This can be done at the end of an art lesson or at a point during a project when there is still time for revision. I like to use this as a way for students to share their sketchbook idea with another student before starting on their final work of art. 

This could also easily be used as a way to review a piece of writing or other projects with a peer in any classroom.

There are 5 different cupcake designs. All of the pages say “I like” in the frosting area, but each one as a different prompt in the cake area.

Such a cute idea for writing celebrations! Easy to use and allows kids to provide feedback for one another! Loved it!

I used this a couple of days ago in 3rd grade for opinion writing. The students provided the cutest and most polite critiques ever! They used the “sweet idea” design. This is going to be a new routine for our writing time and feedback is much more powerful from all of them, rather than just from me. Thank you!

Perfect for peer feedback in my classroom! My students loved filling it in, and decorating it for their peers! Thank you!
