Build One: Rock Paper Scissors Faceoffs
The teacher sets up the playing area that is divided in half by a center line. Where each half meets, the teacher makes a line of polyspots about a foot away from the center line. In between the lines, the teacher places a bunch of beanbags. At the back of each zone, the teacher establishes an endzone area.
Each team waits in their endzone until the teacher's signal. On the signal, players race to a polyspot that is in their half of the playing area.
When players get to a spot, they shake hands with the player from the opposing team that is standing opposite of them and then play a round of Rock Paper Scissors. Once a player has won the round, the two players high five and the victorious player picks up a beanbag from the center line. The two players then have to make their way back to their endzone (and the victorious player leaves the beanbag there).
Before being able to go back to a spot, each player has to perform five jumping jacks.
Play continues until there are no beanbags left in the center of the playing area.
Build Two: Rock Paper Scissors Battle Spots
Each team now forms a line in their playing zone. The teacher then creates a single line of 5 polyspots that is aligned with each team's line.
On the teacher's signal, the first player of each teams sprints to the middle spot. Players shake hands and then play a single round of Rock Paper Scissors.
The player who wins the round gets to move to the next spot that is closest to the other team's line. The player who does not win makes their way to the back of their team's line, and the next player in line goes to meet the player who won.
Teams go back and forth like this until a player successfully makes their way past the final spot.
