Ball Toss Race

Have the group get into a circle and have one or more balls ready. The leader will begin by throwing, rolling, or bouncing a ball (depending on the age and skill level) to another player while saying the other person’s name loudly. Explain that it is very important to remember to whom they passed the ball. Keep passing the ball around the circle so that everyone has received the ball one time. You can have students sit down once they have received the ball, to make sure nobody gets it twice. When the last person gets the ball have them pass it back to you. Now without the ball, go around the circle in the same order and have the students say to whom they will pass the ball. Once students have that, try it with the ball and see how fast they can go.
