Slip and Slide

Use a giant roll of thick visqueen (polyethylene plastic sheeting) to create a 10’ wide by 20-30’ long slip area. Use dish soap to make it slick. Allow students to go on their bellies (done over grass or other softer material, NOT blacktop, dirt, or rocks!) or use body boards to go on their knees or bellies. Use the hose to continuously keep the area soaked. Students go one at a time, then run back to the beginning. Create a few of these so the wait time is not long.
