Suggested Grade Level: K-2
Materials Needed: Cones for boundaries
Description of Idea
Set up cones to establish boundaries for the playing area. Each student must secretly decide to be either "peanut butter" or "jelly". Have all students walk in the playing area. On the teacher's "STOP" signal, students stop walking and shout whether they are "peanut butter" or "jelly". If students hear the opposite spread, they join hands or lock elbows to become a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. The sandwich then walks in the playing area together. The sandwich also must secretly decide whether to be "peanut butter" or "jelly" when the "STOP" signal is heard again. The activity continues until thick sandwiches are made or the activity can stop at the teacher's discretion.
