Skill Challenge: Gorilla Gateway!

How many rolls does it take to get through all the gates?

You will need:

A bigger ball
10 + household objects for gates, pair them


Set up several gates using household items around your space. Pair them together so you know which gateway to go through.
Use the technique from the learn activity.
The object is to count how many rolls it takes for you to roll your ball through each gateway, you are not allowed to move with the ball.
Number your gates 1 to however many you have and make sure they are following on from each other in order.
Count each roll and whatever number you have after the ball passes through the last gate is your score, the lower the better.

Watch the video demonstration below!
