Immediate Preparation (5-10 minutes). Draw two squares about 1 m wide at both ends of the playground. In the centre, draw two parallel lines about 2 m apart. Divide the class into halves and put them between the lines: Team A facing one square and Team B facing the other. Provide the front players with the sticks of chalk, which also serve as batons.

How to Play. At your command, e.g.: 'Draw a roof!', the first players run to their ‘houses’ and draw a roof. After their returning, you give another command, e.g.: 'Draw a door!' and so on. If there are many players in the teams, you can command to draw a tree, a road, a bicycle, etc. The winner of the game is the first team to finish the relay race.
