Last year someone posted that they have their kids write about how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Then she brings in all of the things needed to make one. She then, goes through the papers, following the directions word for word and attempts to make the sandwich. I wanted to try it this year b/c it sounds FUN, but I haven't yet. I'm trying to get DH to do it in his writing class.

peanut butter crackers

I actually just did something very similar with my class! We made peanut butter and crackers just the other day! I didn't tell my students anything except to write directions for me to follow on how to make the PB crackers. I told them that I'd be acting like a Robot from outer space and that I only do exactly as I'm told. Some are pretty spot on, others are hysterical! I only read the ones that students tell me I can read aloud. After making their crackers I give them to the kids. I also let them all know that whether or not I'm allowed to read their papers, everyone will get a little snack.

It's funny when they forget to say to open the PB and just say "put the PB on the cracker" (I end up with lots of crushed crackers!)

We then discuss what was missing from their papers and why it's important.

I did a lesson with legos where the kids had to put together a lego car and then they had to evaluate the directions, and rewrite them so they were more effective.
