I wrote "Es isst ein Sandwich" and it said that was correct but wrote the translation as "It is a sandwich". My sentence meants "It is eating a sandwich", the other is a translation for "Es ist ein Sandwich"!

I did the same thing.. it's hard to know if it wants "eats" or "is"

To make and to eat are very different in both english and german, macht is to make
