The Lava Pit

Make up a scenario that the participants are being chased and need to cross a field of hot lava in order to escape. Divide the participants into two even teams. Give each team paper plates explaining that when they step on these plates they will not sink into the lava. The group must figure out how to get from one side of the lava pit to the other. Only one person can be on a plate at a time, and the plates may be picked up and moved. Key to the game is that only one person will need to work their way back across the field to help the rest across.
