This activity is designed to help your students practice following directions that are complex or contain 2 steps.
There are two different following directions mats (elves and Christmas trees), 16 manipulative pieces for each mat, and 24 following directions cards for each mat. The following directions cards contain 6 directions with a “first…then” format, 6 directions that contain the words “before” or “after,” 6 directions that contain negation, and 6 conditional directions.
Here’s how to use these activities:
1) Print a following directions mat and set of manipulatives for each student. You can probably print just one set of the following directions cards for multiple students to share.
2) Cut apart the manipulative cards and the following directions cards
3) Have each student choose a following directions card and follow the direction using the manipulatives
