Preparation: Plastic tarps to cover the floor, garbage bags for students to wear, chairs, 3×5 cards, pens, and various condiments.
This is a messy game and make sure appropriate steps are made in preparing for it, (i.e.: plastic on floors, kids don’t wear nice, school clothes, etc.) Make sure you choose 4 very brave students for this game. Each student then picks a smart friend to be their partner. Sit the 4 “brave” students in chairs on the floor & give them garbage bags to protect their clothes. The 4 “smart” friends stand behind them. 5 questions will be asked of the teams & the “smart” friends will write their answers down on a 3×5 card. Once all players have answered reveal the correct responses. If they answer correctly the team wins points. If they answer incorrectly the player in the chair gets “slopped” with that condiment associated with that round. (1st round: ketchup, 2nd: mustard, 3rd: relish, 4th: cheese, 5th: Mayo) Give a prize to the player or team with the most points.
