Product Description
This is a fun activity to get students thinking about and practicing the characteristics of a well-written procedure. This applies to scientific procedures and every day procedures like making a peanut butter sandwich, getting to school and opening your locker, doing your hair in the morning, body-surfing a wave, cleaning the kitchen, etc.

The materials needed for this activity are Legos and brown paper bags. Small groups of students build a Lego structure and write a corresponding procedure that another group must follow. The groups evaluate one another on the strength of their procedures, and following a class discussion about the characteristics of a well-written procedure, the groups revise their own for building their Lego structure.

The student worksheets include the instructions, space for procedure writing, and evaluation questions. Detailed Teacher Notes are included as well.

This activity is great to incorporate during a unit on science process skills and the scientific method, or even in a non-science based course to review the importance of writing clear, detailed procedures.

If you are developing a unit on science process skills, you may also be interested in my Differentiating Between Scientific Theories and Scientific Laws Group Activity!
