Amazing Race

Objective:
To finish all 7 stations and complete 6 travel cards with integrity with your partner(s).

Equipment:
• 1 Fitness Step per team (52865 or #52138/39)
• 14 Cones (#21162)
• 6 Cone Holders (#21192)
• 4 Scooters (#17076 or 17139)
• 2 Medicine Balls (#29559)
• 4 Twirl n Jumps (#13009)
• 12 Sports Nexus hurdles (#16720)
• 6 Mini Fish Footballs (#17154)
• Agility Ladders (#13131)

Description of game:
Each team of 2-4 students starts on a station. While the first person ( or more depending on the size of team) does the first activity at the station, their teammates are doing the second task. Once the partner(s) have completed the task to the cone and back, they high 5 one another and then switch and complete the other task. When all tasks have been completed at the station the players will go and get a travel card and complete the task together. Once they have completed all 7 tasks and 6 travel cards they are finished and should step to the podium with their teacher. Students can start at any station and rotate to any station in any order. They must complete a travel card before starting a new station. If students are not performing their stations with integrity they can be given a “Detour Card” which will slow them down. This will either have them start over that station or have them perform an additional task.

Podium Questions:
1.) Is your whole team here?
2.) Did you end on an activity?
3.) Did you travel 6 places?
