Hit and Run

This Hit and Run activity & project also includes:

After partnering up each person, give the pair a ball. One person gets the ball first, while the other person runs around. The person with the ball tries to chase down their partner and hit them with the ball. Then, the roles reverse. Each runner gets a five second head start before they can be hit with the ball.
