Grade Levels: K-3

These classroom activities are designed to complement the Sequence topic on BrainPOP Jr.

Have students write a do-it-yourself guide to completing an activity. This may be a guide that teaches how to cook something, build something, or even do a dance. Encourage children to be creative! Remind them to use transitions or time-order words as they write their guides. Then have students swap their work and read how to do the activity. Have them circle the transition words their partner used, and follow the guide to learn something new! Afterward, have students talk about how the transition words helped them determine the order of events.

Put it in Order

Have students draw a series of pictures that tell a story. They may want to illustrate a few scenes from a book or even a movie. Then have them cut the pictures out and have a partner put the pictures in order. What clues let them know how to order the pictures? Challenge students to write a caption for each picture, using transitions or signal words where appropriate.
