Steps Sequence Lesson Plans

Sequences, Summaries, and Stories

By Anna Warfield

We put stuff in order all the time. Chronological order, numerical order, alphabetical order. We use order of steps for driving directions, recipes, processes and routines. Sometimes performing a task using the correct order of steps is crucial to success. Sequencing aids us in carrying out tasks, but also in organization of information.

Storyboard Text

  • "Hamlet, Hamlet, my no-good-rotten brother poisoned me to marry your mother and take the throne…"
  • I am but mad north-north-west. When the wind is southerly, I know a hawk from a handsaw. Whatever that means!
  • This will fool them all! The fools!
  • Oh no! Hamlet knows!
  • A spooky ghost king!
  • I guess I'll wait until he is vile again.
  • This prayer doesn't mean anything.
  • Is there a method to the madness?
  • The play's the thing!
  • Well, I should not have hesitated. Oops.
  • To kill or not to kill?
  • Hamlet kills Polonius and drives Ophelia to suicide. Laertes won't like this!
  • (Almost) everyone dies.
