Another “Minute to Win It” game:
Students are playing with 4 Aces, 4 Kings, 4 Queens, 4 Jacks, and 4 Tens… one by one they have to sort the 5 sets of 4 on different chairs (Aces on one, Kings on one, Queens on one, etc). They must complete it in under 60 seconds.
On Wednesday, October 20, 2010, we continued our “Minute to Win It” challenges @ msy YOUTH.
The challenge was to put BACK together a cereal box that had been cut up into several pieces. Our intern, Sarah, put magnets on the back of these pieces and set up a piece of metal on an easel so everyone could see. The goal, obviously, was to complete this task in 1 minutes or less. I think we had 5 students attempt this challenge and NOT a single one accomplished it. A couple came close.
So we had Sarah come up and attempt the game she facilitated (just to see if it was possible). And it was. She completed easily and with time to spare!
The last several weeks we have been playing “Minute to Win It” games at msy YOUTH (middle school youth group @ Hayward Wesleyan), which is where the contestant has to accomplish a task in 60 seconds or less. I happen to be standing in the A/V booth last Wednesday and thought it would be fun to record the action…
Task: stack 28 styrofoam cups in a pyramid and de-stack them in 60 seconds or less.
