Rock School

This game is played with approximately five players. One
player, the teacher, stands in front of the other players, the
students, who are sitting on the bottom row of stairs (which is used
to symbolize kindergarten). The teacher places a rock in her hands,
puts her hands behind her back, putting the rock in a different hand.
The teacher then puts her closed hands in front of her, the rock is
concealed. The students then have to guess what hand the rock is in.
If the player picks the hand the rock is in he/she passes to the
first grade; if he/she does not they remain on the same step in the
same grade. The amount of steps determines what grade the school
goes up to. The first person to reach the top step becomes the
teacher, and the game resumes from the beginning.

Submitter comment: This game can be played indoors or outdoors wherever stairs are
available.
