A board made on cardboard, with a grid of string

Instructions :

Divide the class into two teams. Give each student a paper cup and place the counter in the center of the board (the square marked 13 in our photo). Students from each team stand on opposite sides of the board. On “GO” the teacher students flip their paper cup from the edge of a table. If their cup lands standing on its base, the student moves the counter one square away from them. Should the counter move outside of the board, the player who stands opposite the edge of the board the counter was moved beyond wins a point for their team. Once the game has run its course, count the scores for each team. The team with the most points in the winner.
