This short, one-class period activity gives late elementary through middle school kids an opportunity to practice writing clear and specific procedures. Student handouts are included. This activity requires only a handful of Lego bricks and it’s ready to be used in the classroom.

I've been looking around at a lot of lesson ideas like this. Many of them are either too simplistic/unrealistic or too complicated. This one is "just right".
