This is a short activity I created to introduce procedural text. I began by asking each student to think about how they eat an oreo cookie. I then gave them each an oreo cookie and the third page in the packet. They were to very slowly eat the oreo while writing each step they took on the sheet. After they finished, each students traded their sheet with their partner and they followed their steps to eat a second oreo.
Students then discussed the differences in each others' steps and decided upon their favorite method.
Each student then created a book writing the steps in each page and drawing an illustration for their step.
