"Sequence of Events" & Peanut Butter!

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: SLC, Utah
Date Submitted: April 16, 2001

Introduce a "sequence of events" writing activity with peanut butter! That's right! Gather your students around and pretend you are a visitor from another country who has never had a peanut butter sandwich! Have peanut butter, jelly, bread, and butter-knife with you for the demonstration. Ask kids to tell you how to make it, but do everything they say literally. For example, if a student says, "put the peanut butter on the bread," then you literally take the entire jar (lid still on) and put it on top of the bag of bread! You will definitely get some giggles! The point is to get the kids to take you step by step in the process of making the sandwich. (i.e. First, you must unscrew the lid the of peanut butter, Next…)
Challenge your students to then make their own "how-to" book. Examples might include, "How to make a banana split," or "How to ride a bicycle."
