Object Relay Race

Source: Games And Play For School Morale
Category: Seventh Grade





Players stand in files, an equal number in each file. Opposite and at
about fifteen and twenty yards respectively from the front player of
each file, two circles (about eight inches in diameter) are marked on
the ground, one straight behind the other. In the nearest of each of
the circles an object (stone, stick, club) is placed. At the command
"Go" the first player of each file races to the first circle, seizes
the object and places it in the second circle, five yards off. He then
races back and touches the outstretched hand of the next player in his
row. The latter then races to the object and in the same way places it
back in the near circle, and so alternately until each player of the
row has had his turn. The last player, having deposited the object in
the circle, races back to the line which the front players were
originally "toeing". The first row to finish wins. Each player after
touching the outstretched hand of the "next to run" places himself at
the rear of his row, which keeps moving forward so that the next to run
is always "toeing" the original line.
