Fetch 12

Simple activity to warm up stackers and review stacking patterns

Teach (10 Minutes)

Upstacking the 1-10-1

  • Demonstrate the 1-10-1 (column of 12 to 1-10-1 to downstacked 3-6-3).
  • Begin with a 12-cup column. Pick up the top two cups, one in each hand.
  • Turn one cup (180°) palm out and place both cups down. Practice several times.
  • Upstack using the 5-4-1 method. Dominant hand takes five cups, non-dominant hand takes four cups, one cup is left behind.
  • Dominant hand leads by placing one cup next to the remaining cup, non-dominant hand follows by placing one cup on the other side. Form a base of 4 cups this way.
  • Drop one cup on the center of the base and alternate hands completing the 10-Stack.

Downstacking the 1-10-1

  • Demonstrate the downstack showing the ‘X’ formation.
  • Pick up the two single cups with the same hand positions used to set them down and raise above the 10-Stack.
  • Slide the cups in your hand down diagonally, leading with your dominant hand, following with your non-dominant hand.
  • Your dominant hand keeps five cups and your non-dominant hand keeps one cup (releasing three).
  • Your non-dominant hand now leads and slides the cup in your hand down over the remaining two outer cups. Your dominant hand follows and places five cups over the remaining center cup, ending in a downstacked 3-6-3.
