Hopscotch is a simple children's game which can be played with several players or alone. In addition to jumprope, hopscotch is often played in schoolyards. In North America, it is considered primarily a game for girls.

Hopscotch originated in Britain during the early Roman Empire. It was initially designed as a training regimen for Roman foot soldiers who ran the course in full armor and field packs, as it was thought this would improve their footwork. Roman children imitated the soldiers by drawing their own boards and creating a scoring system, and "Hopscotch" spread throughout Europe.

The word "hopscotch" is a compound of "hop" and "scotch", meaning "scratched line". It dates back to at least 1801. - quote from wikipedia
