Walk the Plank

Walking the Plank indoors?

Purpose:

A challenging plank walking ice-breaker and team-building relay.

Materials Needed:

Two planks per team similar to the above picture, these should be about 150mm wide and at least 1,5m long.  Three rope loops are secured through holes in each plank.
Ropes and pegs to lay out the start and finish lines of the relay course.
Small bars of chocolate for prizes.

Age Group:

Grades 3 - 8 (9 to 14 years).

 

The Relay:

You need two planks per team similar to the above picture.  These are fitted with three ropes for the teams to hold onto.  Divide the group into teams of even multiples of six.  The relay is run over a short distance with half of the team placed at each end of the course.

Team members from each end alternately step onto the plank, and holding onto the ropes must "walk" the planks over the course.  When they reach the other side, the next trio of team members take their place on the planks and the relay race continues in the same manner.   Prizes are awarded to the winning team.

Have fun!
