Rock, Paper, Scissors

Whole Class Rock, Paper, Scissors

  • Have the students pair up with their desk or table partner (if you have an odd number of students you can partner with a student or have a group of three)
  • Lead the first round with a 1, 2, 3…Go
  • Winner of each pair goes the front of the room
  • Pair the winners
  • Lead the second round with a 1,2,3…Go
  • Winner of each pair stays in the front of the room
  • Pair the winners
  • Lead the third round with a 1,2,3…Go
  • Continue with this until you are down to a group of two or three
  • The winner is the class champion until the next time it is played
  • Visuals can be used for student that are not able to make the rock, paper, scissors with their hands.  (I kept a few sets laminated and ready to use)
