For this game, divide your students into 2 teams. This game needs each team to have a minimum of 14 people each. Each team will have to follow the directions and make human sculptures using their bodies. The team that correctly makes the desired sculpture wins points for their team. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.
1. Rock of Gibraltar: Pick 7 people to make this shape. At ‘go’ make a pyramid of people on their hands and knees with 3 people on the bottom row, 2 people in the second row and 1 person on top. Then have 1 person climb over the mountain 1st for 200 points.

4. Let’s Build a Bridge: Starting at the stage and using only people from your tribe build a human stationary bridge so that one of the players can walk across a long span without touching the floor, (we went from our stage to our sound booth). Bridge members must stay on their hands and knees and cannot get up or switch places. (200 points)
5. Mt. Everest: Pick 11 people from your team for this round. At ‘go’ build a mountain same as Rock of Gibraltar only this time start with 4 people on the ground, 3 people on the 2nd row, 2 people on the 3rd row and 1 person on the top. Have someone climb over the mountain – first one to do so successfully wins 200 points.
6. Cleopatra Carry: Pick 6 people for this challenge. In this challenge, 4 people on their hands and knees will ‘transport’ 2 ‘queens’ from the front of the stage to the sound booth and back. The 2 queens will be lying down on top of the 4 carriers (not carried in piggyback style) and the four carriers must stay together so that the ‘queens’ do not at any time touch the ground with any part of their body. The first team to get back to the finish line wins 200 points for their team.
