This holiday, use recipes to learn about the importance of sequence and following directions. Especially fun around Easter, Thanksgiving or Christmas, but can be used anytime. LF based lesson plan focuses on "How are following directions and sequencing events related?" Teacher directions included, with Activity Sheet with Essential Question and Activating Strategy, Activity Directions, and Exit Ticket Summarizer. Also included a set of blank recipe cards for students to complete.
Students will work with a partner and find recipes in a cookbook or on the internet and copy them down on their blank recipe cards. They will then complete two different activities with the cards. With the first card, they will identify directions and transition words and discuss what would happen if these got mixed up or out of order with their partner. With the second card, they will copy the directions onto sentence strips, mix them up, and give to another group to put in order. They will then write about their experience and turn in their summary. Ticket out the door included.
