Why Lesson Planet?
A variation on the classic "How to Make a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich" activity emphasizes the importance of following directions in the correct order. First, read three-step directions for flying a kite and demonstrate what happens if you do things in the wrong order. Will your kite fly? Provide learners with practice by writing directions for an exercise with paper and pencils. Finally, have learners sequence sentence strips with instructions for making a PBJ. Variations would make good hands-on literacy center activities for regular practice with sequencing.
