The Slowest Bobsled Race Ever Won
The goal is to move as a unit over a certain distance (we used tape lines about 5-6 feet apart). Give them time to practice--they will learn quickly they have to work as a team to move without becoming disconnected!
Line up your "bobsleds" and the first group to completely cross the finish wins. Disqualify any team that separates.
Variations: Try a whole-class bobsled! Or backwards or sideways bobsled race!
