Task 6: Algorithms and Programming


A lesson that my mentor teacher planned as part of my Year 1 Exploration Practicum in relation to sequence and instruction was a ‘Make you own sandwich’ lesson. Students were asked to write a list of instructions as ‘Step 1, Step 2…etc’ and eventually make a sandwich according to their set of instructions. This meant that some students did not write their instructions as detailed as it should be. An example video is attached below, indicating the process in which the lesson took after.

At the end of the lesson, the teacher talked about the importance of order and then how students could display the data differently (e.g. video or pictures, and interactive version, etc.)
