Octopus

Equipment

  • Wide open space
  • Whole Class

Rules

  • Students line up at one end of open space. 2 4. or 3 students stand in the middle as catchers.
  • When the whistle is blown, students attempt to run from one end of the open space to the other without getting tagged.
  • If tagged, students stand still and assist chasers by reaching to tag runners as they pass by.

Continue blowing whistle to send successful runners back and forth until everyone is caught.
Alternative: runners can ‘save’ those already caught by passing underneath their legs while stationary.
