Play ‘Cross the river’. You must get yourself and a range of objects across the river without falling in.
Use problem solving skills and testing different methods for crossing the river.
Chalk or rope out the river banks. The children should run and jump over the river, landing in a balanced position and passing or throwing their objects across. Increase the challenge by asking the children to clap or turn in the air as they leap.
Make it even trickier by widening the river and cross the river without putting your feet on the ground! Make stepping stones using 2 objects, that you need to step on without putting your feet in the water! If you make the gaps too big you wont reach the next island and you will fall in the water!
