Split into two groups. Choose one person to be
the caller.Each person is given a number. Don't let anyone know your number.
Put the "bacon" on the floor in the middle of the playing field. The caller
yells out a number. The people with that number try to steal the "bacon."
The first person to the "bacon" tries to steal it and get it back to their
team's starting place. The person who does not get the "bacon" tries to
tag the other person before he/she gets to the wall or starting place.
If the person makes it back, he/she gets a point for the team. If the person
gets tagged, no point is awarded, the "bacon" is put back and the players
return to their teams. Play continues for a chosen amount of time.
