  1. Have all participants form a circle while lying on their stomachs, heads toward the center.
  2. Place all hands on the floor in front. One hand, one hand in front of your neighbor. So each person will see one of their hands in front of them as well as one neighbor’s hands.
  3. Have one participant start by tapping their hand on the floor. The tap moves in one direction from hand to hand. For example: your neighbor’s hand taps, then the next hand in order is yours so you tap, then the next hand in order is your neighbors… and so it continues around the circle.
  4. Once the tap has gone all the way around the circle it must change direction. 5. You can increase the challenge by giving students the power to change the direction with a double-tap.
  5. If a participant is too slow to respond or goes in the wrong direction they are eliminated.
  6. The last two students remaining are the winners.
