Games - Turtle Game for Physical Education Class

Dick Moss, Editor, Physical Education Update

Turtle is a fun, cooperative game that's good for a lot of laughs.

All you need are some students and a folding mat. The students must move the mat a pre-determined distance without using their hands. All students must touch the mat and once the mat begins to move it may not touch the floor. If it does, the group must start all over again.

You can make the game a little more competitive by holding turtle races. All the same rules apply, but the first group to cover the race distance wins the contest.
