Each class forms a team of 8 people. These people all stand in a single file line and link hangs with person in front and behind them. Then each person must lie on the ground while the next person steps over them then lies on the ground. After everyone is laying on the ground then the team must all stand up. But while doing all of this they can’t break hands.

The first person must pop it by standing up, the second must do it by having the center person sitting down. The third person must then pop it by having the center person laying in the ground.
