6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

1.Bring out a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Ask if any of the kids would like some. When they say, "yes," tell them that they need to make their own sandwich in order to enjoy one.
2.Ask students what ingredients they think are needed, then bring out the peanut butter, jelly and bread.

B. Development-

1. Show them the ingredients and ask if they know what each item is. Then ask what we should do with each ingredient.
2. Follow their instructions for how to make a sandwich.
3. Be sure to correct any steps that they have wrong - ask questions along the way to help them synthesize what is being taught.

C. Practice-

1. Divide the students into pairs. Have one student tell the other how to make the sandwich while the 2nd student actually makes the sandwich according to the directions given.
2.The student who made the sandwich will evaluate the clearness of the directions once the sandwich is made.
3.Have the partners switch roles.
4.Be sure to walk around the room and help students who are struggling. Once each student has had the opportunity to make a sandwich, let the kids eat them!

D. Independent Practice-

1.For homework, have the students write (or their parents write) a list of instructions for how to make the sandwich again.
2.Ask the students to change one of the ingredients - allow them to be creative.

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

3. If students are unable to physically make the sandwich, just make sure they are able to verbally relay the instructions for making a sandwich.

F. Checking for understanding-

1.Ask the students how their sandwiches taste.
2.Make a list on the board of the steps that the students thought were the hardest for them.
3.Talk about way to change up the sandwich. What other ingredients could we use? How about kinds of bread?

1."Congratulations! You now know how to make a delicious sandwich! Now you can pack your lunches instead of your mom! I challenge you tomorrow to make your own sandwich for lunch - let's see how they turn out!"
2. "Now that you can identify ingredients and construct your very own sandwich, what's next?"
7. Evaluation-
