This activity has been done again and again, but it seems to never lose its impact on students!
Following directions, especially around high-stakes testing season, is incredibly important. Your students will learn just how important it is to follow directions when they take this "Mandatory...Highly Important...Big Stakes Test" test. A great April Fool's Activity...as well as anytime in the year to demonstrate the skill of following directions in a fun...often comical way.
The joke is on your students (well...only those who don't follow directions) as they feverishly work through the test...only to realize that they should have followed directions, read EVERYTHING, and been done...basking in the glory...being entertained by those around them who are standing, stretching, reciting, and solving problems they didn't need to solve. If only they would have read the directions!
A quick reflection is at the bottom of the test so as to drive home the importance of following directions!
I hope you and your students enjoy this quick, fun, and important activity.
