Battle of the Balloon

Five teams, battling to the death! The Aquarius house students, at Bay View Middle school, get rewarded for their hard work. Their reward is playing the balloon battle.

The rules - they have to have an inflated balloon (that is tied around there ankle with a string), they have to stay in the area, and they have to be constantly moving. The teams are determined by stride, and they all get 1 pack of balloons to start. But once the team runs out of balloons, they are done. You have to keep the foot with the balloon on the ground at all times, if not the teachers with a stick has the ability to pop the balloon, if an illegal balloon popping occurs, the student with the balloon gets a green balloon.

The Aquarius house student participate in this fun activity every year. For some teachers it shows team work. For others following directions. Every student comes out of there learning at least on thing.

But, why get rewarded if you didn't do anything to deserve it? Only the students that are able to participate are allowed to do the challenge. The kids who work hard all year for these activities are the kids who get to enjoy this activity. Those of the kids that choose not to do this are sent to a classroom, and giving the period of time to do the work they didn't complete while everyone is competing for the win.
