The kids divided themselves into five teams. I then told them the title of the challenge that they would be competing in. As a team, they decided which teammate would compete in the challenge. They really didn't know what was required, only the topic.
The first challenge was titled "Fancy Footwork". For this challenge, students had to remove their shoes and socks. Using only their toes, they had to transport 10 lima beans from one end of the room to the other. The first contestant to get all ten beans in the team bowl earned five points for their team. Second person earned four points and so on.
