When a lesson involves a process it is easy to have students memorize the steps. Inititally, you should have students handle each step of the process and move them to the correct order.
For this you can use mcSquares Tiles, Stickies, or Tablets. But if you don’t have mcSquares at your disposal you can use a variety of other tools from index cards to moving modules on your smartboard.
Each student is given a jumble of squares. On a basic level, have students sort terms on the squares in the order of the process. You can further this learning by including the title of the step on one card. Have the definition or what happens in that step on another card. For example, have a history lesson and want to show students the sequence of events? Include the big event on one square, a description of what happened on another, then a square with the year. Students then have to find all three matching squares for their event, year, and event description. Then a description of what happened that year on the other square.Then students have to complete two levels of sorting.
