Group Juggle

Group Size: Up to 30 but the larger the number the
longer the ball takes to get to each student.

Key Stages: KS1, KS2, KS3, KS4, KS5


Team Building Skills: Communication, Concentration


Equipment: A selection of balls or beanbags.


Group Juggle is a fantastic way for a new class / group to get to know each other’s names.
The group stands in a circle. Whoever starts with the ball will gently throw it to another member of the group across the group. As they are throwing the ball they must call out their own name. The catcher then does the same and throws the ball to someone else whilst calling out their own name. To help organise the balls route on the first attempt once the thrower has thrown the ball they must fold their arms. This helps people to know they have had their go. The balls last throw should be back to the starting person.
Once an order has been decided and practiced a few times instead of calling out their own name, the thrower can call out the catcher’s name.
To extend Group Juggle this challenge groups can see how quickly they can complete the challenge. In addition multiple balls can be added into the mix to spice it up.
