NAME OF ACTIVITY: Touch My Can
GRADE LEVEL: Any
EQUIPMENT: 1 can or similar size item
(portion of a swim noodle), depending on number and skill level.
This is a very simple game that I use as an introduction and early
cooperative game. This game is designed for 12-15 players, however
the game can be adjusted by changing the size of the object used in the
Start the game by placing the can (piece of swim
noodle) between the noses of two players. The object of the game is
for the entire team of players to be touching the can, all at the same
time, but without touching each other. You can make this game more
challenging by using a smaller item to try to touch, or easier by using a
larger item. You could also make this game into a race by timing how
long it takes to solve this activity, or even have more than 1 group
racing to solve the problem.
In any case, if any two persons make contact, the
entire group must start over.
