Tie one end of each piece of string to one of the legs of a chair. Line up the chairs along the finish line. Have the children who are racing their turtles stand in a row at the starting line. Each child should hold the loose end of one of the strings.
Begin the race with the turtles near the children's hands. When you say "Go" the children who are racing should start jiggling their pieces of string so that the turtles bound toward the finish line. The other children should pick a turtle and cheer for it. Which turtle made it to the end first? Which one was last? Race Again.

Children wearing the the same color as the chalk bord can stand against it. Etc...
