Activities

 

 

Discussion

  • Do you think following instructions is ever more important based on the location?

 

  • Do you think you will have to follow instructions you do not like as an adult as well?  What could consequences of adults not following instructions be?

 

Move Around

  • Students get into groups of 2 and 3.  Students will give each other instructions to follow and practice.  One student gives an instruction, and then switch to the other student. 
     
  • Play a class game of "Simon Says."  Students practice doing exactly what was said.  The last person wins.

 

Review

  • If you do not agree with someone's instructions, how should you handle it?
     
  • What areas of the school, or anywhere, are important to follow instructions?  How does lunch, extra-curricular activities, and "non-school" times play into this? (e.g. How should you handle instructions at something like a ROCORI volleyball game?)
     
  • Why do you think adults expect students to "follow instructions" right away?
