Snake in the Grass

Divide students into small groups. Each group gets one jump rope. Two students are turners, everyone else jumps. The two turners kneel or sit on the ground and hold the rope to the ground. The turners’ job is to move the rope back and forth first slowly and lowly then increasingly faster while the jumpers try to jump over the rope – either using the two-footed or one-footed jump. The challenge is also to try and jump over the rope without touching the rope. The players switch positions when you give a signal.
