Examples of instruction manuals for you to look at:

-You may observe the following video instruction on swimming. Note how the author lists the equipment and then proceeds to mention the steps involved.  The video is over 10 minutes long.  You might just take a look at the first couple of minutes to see how he lists the equipment and then proceeds to the steps.
