Option 2: Design an activity that explores sequences of instructions. In the early years, this could be an activity that encourages children to develop skills in putting things into a logical sequence. In the older years this could be more complex and involve students playing a game or doing an activity. If you are teaching remotely (online) describe an activity that students can participate in from home or in an online environment.
This activity would be aimed at year 5’s. Students are instructed to create a logical sequence of preparing a meal, they will then execute their meals in class.
For example, preparing a cheese and tomato toasted sandwich consists of
- collecting ingredients
- 2. buttering bread
- cutting tomatoes
and so on..
Students are then asked to prepare their collected data to analyse what did work and what didn’t work.
