A team activity with running and stacking.
Separate students into 6 teams. Place jumbos on the far edges of the gym and put each team next to one. Get a set for each student and spread out the cups individually inside of the center circle.
On ‘ready-set-go’, all students can run to the middle and grab one cup that matches their team color. They then run back to the jumbo and put the cups in a column. As soon as they have 12 cups, one of the students stays at the jumbo and stacks. Other students continue grabbing cups from the middle, with additional teammates staying back as more sets get made. Once everyone has a full set and has stacked a pattern twice, the game is over.
SEL helps strengthen the mind-body connection and center mental, social, and emotional health along with physical health.
