Who: Grades 3-8
Time: 10 minutes+
Where: Auditorium, cafeteria, classroom, gymnasium, hallway, library, playground
How to Play
- Players line up and stand 6 ft away from each other. Go over rock-paper-scissors with the players.
- All the students will play against the coach, called the rumbler.
- If a player is successful against the rumbler, he or she remains standing.
- If a player throws the same sign as the rumbler, he or she remains standing.
- If a player is unsuccessful, he or she does five jumping jacks, then sits down.
- The game continues until there is one player left standing. That player becomes the new rumbler.
