Explanation of the activity:
There are three different rounds of sequencing to this activity. First, students will be given pictures of clocks to put into the correct sequential order. Then, they will be given scenarios of things that happened during a day when breakfast was eaten (Monday), and they will have to match the scenarios to the times on the clocks in which the scenario happened. Third, they will be given another set of scenarios to match to the clocks which depict a day in which breakfast was skipped (Tuesday).
The day in which breakfast was eaten will be much more positive than the day in which breakfast was skipped.
You will need index cards, clock pictures, scenarios, glue and scissors. Glue the pictures of the clocks to index cards. Glue the scenarios to index cards. On the other side of the cards, write whether that scenario took place on Monday and Tuesday.
The following questions will help to summarize the activity:
Monday was a better day.
I woke up and ate breakfast.
I woke up late and had to hurry to get to school on time.
I couldn’t concentrate in class; I got in a fight with my friend; I ate too much for lunch and got a stomachache; I couldn’t play outside because I felt sick; and, I didn’t know how to do my math homework because I had not paid attention in class earlier.
I ate breakfast on Monday, so I started my day off right and avoided the things that happened to me on Tuesday.
No, but it will start your day out right. You will be more alert and
better prepared to handle what comes at you during the day.
Eating breakfast will prepare you for the rest of the day. You will be able to concentrate in school, get along with your friends, and make better food choices the rest of the day.
