Are you looking for a fun first day of school activity? Well, here's one that all you have to do is give a copy to each student and tell them, "I'm starting out this year with a test for you to see how well you can follow instructions. All you have to do is follow what the steps tell you to do. You've got five minutes starting...NOW!"
Table of Contents:
Page 1: Cover
Page 2: Five-Minute Timed Test
The first step says, "Read everything before doing anything." If they do that, they'll get to Step 20, which says, "Now that you've read carefully do only sentence two."
You'll have kids feeling like they're doing everything right by yelling their name out loud (because that's one of the instructions) or loudly counting backward from 10. All because they rushed into the activity without following the instructions :)
Start out the year with some laughs and making a point that they'll remember.
