  • Large Group (10 and up)

  • Grades 3-5

  • Chalk

  • 10 minutes or more

Development Goal

To develop problem-solving, teamwork, eye-foot coordination, and communication

Before You Start

Equipment Needed: 25 sequentially numbered paper plates (or other number markers) and chalk or tape to mark off the playing area.

  • Allow teams a few minutes to strategize after the rules are explained.

Set Up

Make a 4×6 (approx.) rectangle with tape or chalk. Place the 25 numbered plates randomly inside.

How to Play

  • Divide group into teams (groups of 5-7 work best).
  • Each group has to touch the plates in order from 1-25 as fast as they can. The coach will keep track of the total time of each attempt.
  • Five second penalties are given each time two people are inside of the rectangle at the same time and when a plate is touched out of order.
  • Have each team set a goal time. Time each attempt, alternating between teams, but allow time to give each team 2-3 attempts. Allow shorter times to strategize between each attempt.
