Jam Sandwich Algorithm

An algorithm is a list of rules to follow in order to solve a problem. Can you use move to create an algorithm for making a jam sandwich? Remember: Algorithms need to have their steps in the right order. When you write an algorithm the order of the instructions is very important.
