Game Description: 
Fun twist on the common board game!
Gather as much food as possible by collecting as many balls as possible using your bin or basket.
Game Rules: 
The leader places all the balls in the middle of the playing area, the teams are given a poly dot around the middle. Divide students into teams, each team must line up behind their poly dot. Teams are given a scooter and a basket. On go, each team starts. One child from each team sits on the scooter with the basket, another child from the same team pushes them to the middle. The child with basket tries to collect as many balls as possible. Continue playing until all of the balls from the middle are gone.
Saftey Considerations: 
Be careful pushing children on the scooters.
Adaptations (optional): 
This is a great game to play if you have a child in a wheelchair. This allows said child to shine. If you are worried about safety, students can push themselves on the scooters.
