Putting it into Practice

Building a Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich!

One way to practice the process of crafting your logic model is to apply the process to something very simple...like building a peanut butter & jelly (PB&J) sandwich!

Activity: Building a PB&J!

Directions
Fill in the PB&J logic model by clicking and dragging the terms or phrases below into the appropriate logic model component box. Consider what you will need to make a PB&J, what you will do, what will result, and what your overall goal is! Correct answers will lock in place. Incorrect answers will bounce back.

[This activity provides practice in building a logic model using the example of making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. In the resulting logic model, inputs might include:

In the resulting logic model, inputs might include:

  • Jelly
  • Money
  • Utensils
  • Natural peanut butter
  • Sliced whole wheat bread

Strategies/Activities might include:

  • Purchase ingredients
  • Assemble sandwich

The output would be a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. The data source for this output might be an observation checklist.

Short-term outcome would be the satisfaction of hunger. The data source for the short-term outcomes might be a satisfaction survey.

Intermediate outcome would be nourishment with a source of energy, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. The data source for intermediate outcome might be a nutritional content analysis.

Long-term outcome would be that the sandwich contributes to a well-balanced diet. The data source for long-term outcomes might include a diet survey, blood test results, blood pressure readings, and a body mass index.

The overall goal for this logic model might be healthy people.
