Promise Learning Relay

One activity that worked REALLY well for some active inner-city girls I had was a relay race to put the words of the GS Promise (on index cards) in order. The cards each had a word or 2 on them, 2 decks exactly the same side by side, slopped around out of order, the girls divided in 2 teams, take turns running down to them & put them in order. Cheap, good way to start off the year, and lets them burn off the energy that they can have early in the year for it all. We did it at an adult training.
