Product Description
Following written directions is a crucial concept for students. Sometimes they get so distracted by the end goal of a project they are creating, or even by what they are learning, that they forget to focus on reading and following the directions carefully. This often results in them getting a lower grade than they should, or them not being able to display what they truly know about a subject. This assignment reminds them of the importance of reading every word carefully in a set of directions.

Students will carefully follow a set of written directions to complete a task and create an exact design on a page. Then, they will trade papers with a partner, and the teacher will lead the class through grading the assignment on the rubric, checking to see that everyone followed the directions carefully. They will each instantly see how well they did, and questions are provided for the teacher to lead the class in a thorough discussion about the importance of following written directions.

This activity is great to do at the beginning of the school year to set expectations or anytime the students need a reminder to follow directions carefully. Throughout the year if they are falling into bad habits, you may be able to refer back to this activity to jog their memory, or repeat the activity at anytime.
