-Setting Up:

  • Participants stand in teams of 3 and await for the leader to announce the challenge.

-Instructions:

  • Players are instructed to time how quickly they can fulfill the instructions given by the teacher.

  • For example, the teacher states, “over, under, around, GO!” Each participant, 1 at a time, must travel over her group, under her group, and around her group, till all 3 players have fulfilled the instructions, are seated, and yell “DONE!” The first group to complete the task successfully is the winner.

-Questions & Notes:

  • Safety considerations:

    • Encourage the participants to select the safest way, which is usually the quickest way, to solve the challenge.

  • Instructional tip:

    • The leader can give the teams time to determine the quickest way of succeeding at the challenge before calling “GO!”

  • Variations:

    • Mass Over-under-around: Instead of teams of 3, make the teams larger by adding another 1-5 players.

    • Backwards Over-under-around: The “runner” must travel with her back in the direction she is travelling.
