Instructions

Depending on class size the teacher may decide to make smaller groups or have the entire class work as a team. Students assemble inside the designated playing area. When ready the teacher throws all tennis balls from a bucket or box. Students then scramble to keep the tennis balls from coming to rest. If a tennis ball is seen to stop moving the teacher must yell “Dead Nuggets, 1,2,3” and if they are able to complete the entire saying the game ends and the time is recorded.

Have teams compete to see who can keep the nuggets alive the longest
