All Aboard

For Middle Level & Elementary • 4-9


Community Level 3 - Comfortable


Materials: A 2'x2' wooden or cardboard square

How To Play: Participants must see how they can all fit on a platform (2' x 2' or other size) at one time. The group must have all feet off the surrounding ground for 5 seconds. Players can be held up with no feet touching the platform.

Variations: One variation is that everyone must have at least one foot on the platform at all times. Another is that the group, not the facilitator, is responsible for knowing when all feet are up, and for counting out the 5 seconds. A third variation could be that you change the length of time during which the group must hold their position, making it either easier or harder to accomplish the challenge.
