Keywords activity, following directions, observe, observation, fun Materials Needed slips of paper with written instructions for students to follow; the activity below includes enough instruction slips for 20 students and one leader Lesson Plan This activity tests students' abilities to observe and follow directions.
It's a fun activity for any time of year, but at that start of the year, it can provide insight into students' ability to follow directions.
To start the activity, distribute to each student a small slip of paper with a simple instruction written on it. You should have a paper slip too; or appoint a student to lead the activity. Each slip of paper has a different instruction in the following format: After somebody stands up and spins around two times, then you will call out "She sells seashells by the seashore" three times as fast as you can.
Enough instructions for 20 students and one leader appear below.
If more than 20 students are in your class, create a new instruction for each additional student. Each student must pay very close attention to the actions of every other student. Following are three sample instructions that will give you an idea of how the activity should flow: After somebody stands up and spins around two times, then you will hum the tune to the song "Row, Row, Row Your Boat.
Start the Activity To start the activity, the teacher or appointed activity leader, ignoring the After somebody stands and The other students observe the leader's action to see if it is the action that appears on their slips following the After somebody The student holding the slip that states that action then performs his or her action.
The game continues until the cycle is complete and each student has performed the action on his or her slip. The idea of the activity is to see how fast the actions can cycle through the entire class.
Once you have done the activity once, you might repeat it to see if students can beat the time they recorded for the first time through. After students have done the activity two or three times, you might collect the slips and have student pick new slips, so they have a new action to do and will have to focus on the new instructions.
The Instructions Print the list below and cut it into strips. If more than 20 students are in your class, you will need to create additional instructions. Be sure the first new instruction you write follows the last instruction below.
You also might consider writing some instructions that relate to curriculum you have taught.
