"Ants on a Log"

Activity

Summary

Students work together collaboratively as a team to accomplish a task that initially seemed impossible

Instructional Strategies

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

Participant Tasks

1. Stand on a line marked on the ground. 2. Number yourselves from 1-10 in the order you are standing. 3. The object of the game is to get each person to switch positions without stepping off the line. So, 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!
