This game can be used as part of an programme learning about the Russian culture. We used it for a winter olympic programme for the 2014 games in Sochi.
Set of boxes that will stack inside each other (5 or 6). one set for each team. These could be small boxes - oxo box, teabag box etc or much larger boxes - Washing machine, printer etc.
Set the boxes up at one end of the hall, separated. Teams are lined up at the other end of the hall. The first team member runs to their set of boxes and must stack them inside each other as quickly as possible. once they are all inside the largest box, they run back and the next player must run up and take them all out. Continue until all members have had a go. first team to complete wins.
