As part of our literacy focus this semester we have been looking at procedural texts.
Procedural texts tell us how to achieve a goal or an outcome through a sequence of steps.
We have focused on the structure of procedural texts including title, materials/ ingredients, and
steps/ method. Students have been involved in following instruction/steps to produce a variety of
things such as caterpillars, flowers, popcorn, etc .We have also compared procedural text structures
to a variety of other texts such as narrative and recount to find similarities and differences.
It has been a very hands on unit with lots of fun activities. We followed a visual procedural text to make Oobleck. Here is the link we used: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1b_JNqcr8Y
