Grade Level: 3-5, 6-8

Create two teams of players and have them start on opposite base lines. Give each player one pin to guard. At the start of the game, students try to knock down the pins from the opposing team. As opposed to regular knockdown, the goal of this game is to have students knock down as many pins as possible. Players guarding their pins simply tip them back up once they’ve been knocked down. The class keeps track of the score and tries to beat it in the next round.
