snowshoe relay

Players:

bullet

4 or more

Equipment:

bullet

2 sheets of newspaper per team

bullet

Space to run (non-carpeted floors are best)

bullet

1 chair per team (optional)

How to play:

bullet

Divide players into teams of two or more.

bullet

Have teams line up relay style at one end of the playing area.

bullet

Give each team a pair of "snowshoes" (sheets of newspaper)

bullet

Players place the snowshoes on the floor and use them to slide their feet along as they race to the other end of the playing area and back.

bullet

When the first player on the team returns to the start, they pass the snowshoes to the next player and so on.

Optional:

bullet

Place a chair at the "far" end of the playing area for players to race around.

bullet

Cut the newspapers (ahead of time) into snowshoe shapes instead of leaving them square.  Let the girls try both ways and discuss which worked best (and why).  Relate their observations to the design of real snowshoes.

bullet

If space and resources permit, give each player their own snowshoes and just have a straight race.
