Steal the Bacon

Divide the students into 2-4 groups; each team sits on a boundary line. Give each student a number. Each group should have a 1, 2, 3, etc. Place the “bacon” in the center of the playing area, which can be a ball or any object they can carry and run with. Assign each team one goal line at either end of the playing area. The adult calls out a number, and all students with that number run to pick up the “bacon”. The student who gets the “bacon” first tries to run across his/her team’s goal line without being tagged. The student whose number was called who did not get the “bacon” should try to tag the other player before they get across the goal line. If they cross their team gets a point. Once someone is tagged or gets across their goal line, the round is over. The team with the most points wins.
