Group Sequencing Activity

Submitted by: Marsha Carlevaro


Easy book with good plot to sequence, stickies, paper


After reading a story divide the class or group into 3 groups (more can be used with repetition of sections of the book). Give stickies to each group. Divide the book into beginning, middle and end parts. Assign each group a part of the book. Tell each group they are to write an important event of their section on each sticky and order them in sequence.

Starting on the left side of the room, the beginning group (and each subsequent group) is to place their stickies in order creating a long sequence of the story. Each group can rearrange the order and if there is duplication they can place their sticky on top of the other one.

After all stickies are up, read the summary and check to see if it is right.
