Fun activity for your students to see if they read the directions before beginning the work. Students are asked to do to some slightly unusual tasks, such as "stand up and count to 100 by 10's", but if they read the directions AND FOLLOW THEM, they will only have to write their name.
The second page teaches students how to write clear directions and gives them examples. Students will be asked to compare 2 sets of directions and choose the one they think is best/clear. Finally, students are asked to write directions on "How to....".
