How to Play

  • Instruct players to form two lines and stand six feet away from one another.

  • Players must land on the other side without putting their foot down between the  sticks.
  • After each jump, players go to the end of the line keeping your distance from the person standing in front of you. 
  • The gap between the two sticks gets wider each round.

Check for Understanding

  • What happens to the sticks after each round?

GAME TIP
