MAIN POINT: It is difficult to walk steadily and be focused on the tasks at hand if we allow the things around us to distract us.
Preparation: A 16′ 2×4, flag football flags, and super soakers.
Use a stopwatch or nowadays your smart phone’s stopwatch feature. Secure a 2X4, about 16 feet long, on top of a few cement blocks (not too high; you don’t want a lawsuit!). Tie several football flags to the 2×4. Have the students walk across it, reach down and pull off as many flags as they can, while being sprayed from all sides with super soakers. If they fall off they are eliminated. The one to walk across the quickest and with the most flags wins.
