NAME OF ACTIVITY:
at least 20 foam patties (hamburger) - swim noodle that has been cut into
1 1/2 inch thick patties. Preferably the monster noodles (Fat ones).
HIGHLIGHTS: Cooperation and teamwork
INSTRUCTIONS: Personally, I use this a a
station activity. For each hamburger press I use two or three
students. The object of the game is to see how many patties the two
players can push between their hands. Hear are the rules that I use:
2 player - Players start with one patty sandwiched between their
hands (1 hand from each player). Player one will then try to add a
patty. Player two will add a patty, and so on. Players are not
allowed to use their other hand except to add patties. Personally, I
do not let students adjust the patties with their free hand. They
are only allowed to add the patty. Also, I do not allow the students
to wrap their finger around the patty (They must press with palms
only. No other body parts can touch the patties.
3 player - All the same rules, except player 3 does all of the
adding of patties. I use three players if I have an odd number of
students in a group, or if I am short on patties.
Watch for students who try beat the game by: building vertically instead
of horizontally. Or Students who try to add more then 1 patty at a
& Lead Up/Tag
