This short activity will give your students an idea of how well they can follow written directions. I have used this for over 15 years. It is best given before a lab or before testing. It can be used in grades 6 through 12.
The activity can be completed in 5 to 10 minutes.
Introduce the activity very seriously. Tell the students that this is an official test given by the Department of Security to all students in their grade level.
Give the students 5 minutes to work on the activity. It will become obvious as to who can followdirections.
