Ants on a Log

A fun and physical activity that encourages teamwork and collaboration. You will need an even number of youth to participate, ideally close to 10. Find a straight line on the ground (or make one with tape) and have all youth stand on the line. Number each person in standing order from 1-10. The object of the game is to get each person to switch positions without stepping off the line. Person 1 will switch with person 10, 2 with 9, 3 with 8, 4 with 7, and 5 with 6. This requires strategy and critical thinking to determine the best method to get everyone successfully switched while staying on the line!
