Trash Can Basketball

Set up Indoors. Set up one empty container, 2-3 cones to mark where students will stand in line, and three other markers of varying distances from the container. Separate students into teams of 6-8 and have them line up behind the cones. Ask a question to campers. Only the students at the front of each line can answer. If someone from the back of the line answers, that line is disqualified for that round. Whoever answers the question first wins the right to shoot the “ball” into the container.

They have three choices:

– Shoot from the closest spot (slam dunk) for 1 point.

– Shoot from the medium spot for 2 points.

– Shoot from the farthest spot for 3 points.

– After each round, the contestants return to end of the line.
