The Elephant Race

Key Stages: KS2, KS3, KS4, KS5
 
Team Building Skills : Taking Part, Personal contact
 
Equipment: No equipment needed

The Elephant Race is a game that will have the participating teams laughing all the way to the finish line.

The instructor / teacher will need to split the group into at least two teams. Should there be uneven teams the team with a person less will have to do an extra lap.

The teams will need to stand in a line one behind each other at a start line.

The first person from each team will need to run around a marker. This can be set as close or as far as you wish. Once they return they need to put their right hand through their legs and the next person in the line will grab it with their left hand. This is where The Elephant Race starts to heat up! The pair must then make the same trip around the marker and back to the start to pick up another team mate. They will become attached in the same way.

The winning team will be the first team back with the whole team in tow,  joined by their hands between their legs.
