A great little study break game to freshen up the mind and develop hand eye coordination at the same time!

Game Type: Study Break

Recommended Ages: 6 and up

Number Of Players: Whole class

Equipment Required: A tennis ball is perfect but any small ball will do

Where To Play: Indoors or outdoors

Duration: 5-10 minutes

How To Play

Step One: Students spread out around the room.

Step Two: One student starts with the ball.

Step Three: Students pass the ball around the room. Students must say the name of the person they are throwing the ball to before they throw. Once they have thrown the ball, the thrower must move to another place in the room.

Step Four: If a student drops the ball, they can only use their right hand to catch. If they drop the ball again, they can only use their left hand to catch. If they drop the ball again, they must kneel down but may use both hands. When they successfully catch the ball again, they stand up and may catch the ball with two hands again.

Teaching Note

Play Drop before class starts to build that fun classroom energy that really supercharges learning.
