Strikeball

This Strikeball activity & project also includes:

Groups form a circle with each person's feet spread shoulder width apart and touching the person's next to them. Drop a ball in the middle of the circle. The object of the game is for players to keep the ball from leaving the circle without moving their feet and while standing. If a player smacks the ball through another player's legs, then that person earns a point. Continue playing.
