Helium Hoop

For Middle Level


Community Level 1 - Acquainted


Materials: 1 hula hoop for each group of 4 to 6 players

How To Play: Four to six players gather around a hula hoop (a lightweight stick can also be used) and put their index fingers under the hoop's edge, starting with the hoop at roughly waist level. As a group, they try to lower the hoop to the floor while keeping everybody's two fingers touching the underside of the hoop at all times.

Plan for Success: Model the lowering of the hoop with two players before inviting larger groups to try.
