This is the game where you start out with two people sitting back to back and they have to stand straight up without using their hands. Add one person every time they stand up successfully. Our record is ten! The students will be amazed at how it works!
The Point: This is a great game for showing students what teamwork can do. It would be nearly impossible to accomplish this by oneself.
