Sharks and Minnows
An awesome outdoor game to play with another home court! Need: a wide open area with boundary lines or markers.
To Play: Several students or teachers, from one to three, begin half way across the open area at the middle point. Having a visible line on the ground is helpful if possible. All others line up at the far boundary line facing the sharks. The head shark will shout 'go' and the minnows will try to run across the area. Once a minnow crosses the center line, a shark will try and tag them. If tagged, the minnow freezes, and becomes a shark the next round. The minnows try to run all the way across to the far line without getting tagged. The minnows that make it turn around, the sharks- now more numerous- line up at the center line, and the minnows try to run back without getting tagged. This goes on until there is one minnow left.
Tips: When there are mostly sharks, make a rule they have to walk. Or, that they have to spread out to prevent them from creating an enormous barricade. With only a few minnows left, count down from 10 to hurry them into the shark's waters.
