Coin Flip Derby

This game is a favorite in our class. Set up 2 rows of about 5 chairs. Have 2 boys and 2 girls come up. One girl and one boy each get a coin. The other two players sit at one end of each row. The player with the coins flip them. If it is heads, the player of that team moves up one chair. If it is tails, the players of that team moves back one chair. For example Bill and Frank are playing Abigal and Gertie. Bill and Gertie are the flippers. Frank and Abigal sit in the seats. If Bill flips and gets heads, Frank moves up one seat. If Gertie flips and gets tails, Abigal moves back one seat. Whoever gets to the other end of the row first wins.
