Grade Level: 3-5
Students brainstorm “clean” habits, and then rank them in order of importance. In small groups, students find an area against a wall, and draw a symbol to represent each of the habits, with the least important closest to the wall and the most important farthest away from the wall. Players stand behind a line which is past the farthest habit symbol, and take turns throwing a pinky ball at the wall so that it bounces into the habits. Players must catch the ball for it to count as a “keep.” Players continue until they have “collected” all of the habits, then they may help their partners try to complete their turns.
