Instructions

Method 1
Divide group into 2 teams, they start at a start line, on the whistle the first 2 players run to the board and place a beanbag and return. Then the second pair and the third. After the third pair the rest of the team members have to move their beanbags around to get there in a row.

In a small hall use a whistle to do relays, in a bigger environment with matched teams you can allow them to run on tag relay when returning to team base.

Method 2
1. Divide the group into two teams and number the members sequentially from #1.
2. Instruct each team that the goal is to make a row of three members from their team. Give one team the paper noughts and the other the paper crosses.
3. When a number is called that member from each team picks a square on the grid and sits in it, with suggestions and cheers from their teams.
4. Repeat step 2 until 8 squares are occupied, by 4 members from each team.
5. Call a number and ask the two opposing team members a quiz question. The team member that answers correctly gets to sit in the last place.
