How-to Pudding Cups

In writing, we have been working on writing "How-To" papers.  I saw an activity HERE that involved pudding cups and I thought it tied in well with Earth Day,  Earth Day... pudding dirt cups... it works, right?  I made my dirt pudding cup as an example, and we talked through the steps.  Then, I gave them all of the supplies they would need to make their own, as well as a sheet with first, next, then, and last.  As the kids were making their cups, they wrote the steps down.  After they had made their cups, they got another sheet that had feels, tastes, looks, and smells.  As they enjoyed eating their pudding cups, they wrote down how it tasted, looked, smelled, and felt.  This was a great way for us to review adjectives!  Overall, a super fun project!  The kids had a blast, and learned a thing or two! ;-) I would HIGHLY recommend this cute activity from Amy Lemons!
