-Setting Up:

  • Two teams of six players (number is not critical) line up on either end of a volleyball court.

  • One player from each team sits in the middle of the court on the opposite side of the net.

  • Divide the volleyballs equally between the two teams.


  • On the leaders signal to begin, players begin to serve balls over the net and attempt to have their player catch their served ball.

  • When a player's serve is caught, that player goes to the other side of the court and sits on the floor as well, and tries to catch served balls--the amoeba begins to grow.

  • The first team to have all their players seated on the other side of the net, that team wins.
