Have you ever tried to build or make something without reading the directions first, thinking that you could figure it out by looking and then had to start over and read the directions and follow them step-by-step? The third graders in Mrs. Parks learned all about how important good directions are when trying to follow a recipe. Mrs. Sorensen worked with the students on an activity in which they had to first write directions and then had to give those directions to another group to follow. Each group was to follow a step-by-step recipe that was created by two of their fellow classmates to make a "Sugar Tornado". This activity showed the students how important it is to include details in their instructions. It was interesting to see the interactions as the students worked on this project.
