Thumbs up Follow The Directions (Do this with at least 2 people)

This is a timed test. After printing this page ( please print it, you will need it) you will have only 5 mins to complete. Make sure to time yourself. Print 2 or 3 pages and do it with your kids or a friend.

1. Read everything carefully before doing anything.
2.Write your name in the upper right hand corner of the page you printed.
3. Now circle hte word "name" in the 2nd sentence.
4. Draw 5 small squares in the upper left hand corner.
5. Put a circle around each square.
6. Now put an "X" in each square.
7. Loudly call out your own name when you get to this sentence.
8. After the title "Follow The Directions." write "yes,yes,yes."
9. Put an "X" in the lower left hand corner of your paper.
10. Draw a circle around sentence # 7.
11. Draw a triangle around the "X" in the lower left coener.
12. In your normal voice count from 1 to 10 backwards.
13. Draw a rectangle around the word corner in sentence #4.
14. Print the name of your love above the title of this paper.
15. If you think you have followed directions to this point call out loudly "I have."
16. On the back of your paper add 567 + 345.
17. Put a circle around your answer and a square around the circle.
18. On the back of this paper multiply 700 X 5.
19. Poke 3 small holes at the top of your paper.
20. If you are the first person to reach this point loudly call out" I am the first person to reach this point. I am the leader."
21. Circle all the even #'s on the left side of the page.
22. Loudly call out "I am nearly finished. I have followed all of the directions'"
Now that you have finished reading. Do only sentences one and two.

I remember doing this in 4th grade. I followed the first direction, but I paniced so much when I saw the math problem that I simply couldn't believe that I didn't have to do it (it was a long division problem, which I found impossible at the time), especially when all the "good" students around me were following the rest of the directions. When I got to the end I went back and started doing all the things anyway because I was convinced that I had read it wrong.
