I always love doing this lesson with my students. Even though it's messy and takes time the kids absolutely love it!
We first write the steps on "How to Build a Snowman." Once completed I tell them I have a recipe they're going to follow to make their very own.
First, we read through my steps. Then I reread them and the students used a highlighter to highlight the sequencing words.
Working in groups, students followed my directions. Mixing powdered soap, adding water SLOWLY, and stirring until they got a doughy consistency. Finally, they each made a snowman and decorated them once dry.
Here they are.
