A great activity to help students practice with scientific observation, accuracy in reporting, and following directions closely.

This activity will require students to be split into two groups, and one half will need to leave the room for the first half. I would advise having another teacher who will do this activity with you.

The first group will be given a toy made of Legos or any other material which can be broken down. With their partner out of the room, Partner A will disassemble the toy and write down instructions for how to build the toy. When everyone is done, the partners will switch. Now Partner B must reassemble the toy using only the written guide left for them by Partner A. 

This activity is sure to get a lot of laughs, and I find it's a great way to emphasize the importance of using details in scientific writing. A great first day of school activity!
