Product Description
This fun How-To Assignment asks students to write a set of directions for accomplishing a task. This is a great activity to get students ready for taking the state tests. They need to be able to read and follow directions on the formal tests, so this informal and fun activity will prepare them for that. The PDF document has directions and a sample directions activity for your students.

I have had great success with this lesson in the classroom. Part of the assignment is allowing students to "act out" their directions exactly as they give them. Students will be required to take EVERY SINGLE STEP into account on their directions. The result of not doing this is quite comical and frustrating. In my class we had a blast trying to stir fruit punch with our hands and trying to get peanut butter out of a closed jar.

This assignment will be memorable and engaging for both younger and older students! Now, follow the directions and don't miss your chance to get this activity for free!
