Activity: Rodeo (calf roping)

Equipment: partners scattered in area (actually, stand by each lasso)


Be sure to tell the students: DO NOT untie the knot in the rope! Person with lasso will hold both ropes away from knot. May need to coil up rope in other hand. Swing lasso along side of body and at forward swing, let go and see if you can rope the calf (chair, hay, tee). Take 3 turns and then let your partner have a turn coil rope in other hand like this.
