-Fundamental Movement Skills:

-Equipment List:

None

-Equipment Link:

-Setting Up:

  • Demarcate two parallel lines approximately 4 yards (meters) apart.

  • Line groups of players up behind one of the lines.

-Instructions:

  • The object of the game is to get an entire group from one line to the other line.

  • The group must always be in contact as it moves as one unit, and the body parts that are counting cannot be alternated for other body parts. For example, if you had 10 players, and you said 10 points, they could all link arms and hop across on one foot each (if they walked across they would be using 20 points of contact).

  • Then reduce the number to 9, 8. . . . See how low you can get them.

  • The winning team is the one which completes the task with the fewest number of body contacts.

-Questions & Notes:

  • Safety Considerations

    • Don’t allow anyone to sit on another player’s shoulders to avoid falls.

  • Teaching Tips

    • Reduce points one at a time.

    • Making the lines too far apart makes it more challenging but will also reduces the opportunity for success.

    • You could also challenge the teams to use no feet, or use only their butts, or only their knees, or any other fun variation you or the participants think of.

  • Questions for Understanding​

    • How did your groups decide how to accomplish the challenge?​
