NAME OF ACTIVITY: Tightrope Walk
GRADE LEVEL: 3-12,
EQUIPMENT: 3 or more two by 4's, various lengths as described. Multiple bases as described, poles, posts or standards.
HIGHLIGHTS: Cooperation, teamwork, strategy, communication, balance
INSTRUCTIONS: This game is based off of a camp
game that I played several years ago. The object of the game is to get your ENTIRE team
from one object to another using only the balance beams. For this
game, I use the 2x4 on the narrow sides. I will stretch the boards
end to end, but I add angles to allow balance/rest points for the
players. The angles can be adjusted to match the level of the
participants. I also add standards or poles to allow for more
balance/rest points for younger students.
HELPFUL HINTS: This game is very
versatile, you can have just the player who touches start again, but I
like having everyone start again, so those who hurry through learn that
they need to find a way to help other get through (TEAM). Add more
angles or more standards to make the game easier.
