Description: Students will practice TEAMWORK by demonstrating their ability work together to move a bag top across the mat without dropping it.
Teaching SKILLZ:
CHOICES – The instructor can tell the students to all find a partner as quick as they can, so they get to choose who they can work with.
DIVIDED ATTENTION The students must be able to carry the pad down the mat together. While doing this, the student has to pay attention to their partner’s speed as they carry the pad down, even if the student in front cannot see their partner.

Divide your students into pairs.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
Have the 1st 2 students stand up and hold the bag over their heads.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:

Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Talk to your teammates.
  • Don’t go to fast.
  • Try not to drop the bag or someone might get hurt.
