This week, the Play Ambassadors have been using marbles for their challenge. Did you know that the game of marbles was first played in the Indus Valley, Pakistan, during the Bronze Age? Marbles were also played in Roman and Egyptian times. Clay was collected from the local river bank, rolled into small balls and baked in the oven. Others were made from stone such as marble - hence the name!
To complete their level 2 challenge, the ambassadors have had to learn to play ‘bounce out’ with their marbles, then play with 5 other people, 3 in school and 2 out of school.
They also have to design their own marble game and play it with 5 other people - 3 at school and 2 out of school.
Have fun playing your marble games!
