We have been learning how to write and give instructions. Firstly we watched a you tube clip on how to make a paper helicopter. We then wrote instructions on how to make the helicopter for a year 4 student to follow. From this exercise we discovered written instructions alone were not adequate. Therefore we discussed how we could improve by drawing diagrams along with the instructions, draw pictures/diagrams only and making a movie with oral instructions. We have broken up into teams and trying out which set of instructions are most successful You will have to wait for the outcome but this is how our written instructions worked out or not!!
This is us giving instructions and the outcome.
This is what the helicopter should have looked like.
