Description of Game
In this adventure challenge game the students(their teams) are required to cross an imaginary river using hula hoops. Once they get to the other side, they can disembark on land and take a piece of gold (a beanbag) and bring it with them back across the river and place it into their Pot (a bucket or hula hoop). The main rules are:
- they must stay inside the hoops as they cross (should they fall or step out a piece of gold is taken from their pot and returned to the other side of the river)
- they are only allowed to have one piece of gold in their hand at a time, from the second they pick it up until the time they place it in the pot (any infraction results in the piece of gold being returned to the other side of the river
- when all the gold has been collected from the far side of the river, the team must make their way back, bringing all the hula hoops with them and then stack the hula hoops in an orderly fashion on the side of the river that they started on
- they then count the bean bags to see how many pieces of gold they collected as a team
