Fox and Geese

Area

Hall, grass, hard surface.

Equipment

None.

Instructions

Children in groups of 4-5. One person is the fox; the others are the geese and stand in a line holding onto the waist of the person in front. The fox tries to tag the last child in the line. The geese move around to avoid the fox and keep their last person safe. If the line is broken the child who lets go takes the place of the fox. If the last child is tagged by the fox they take the fox’s place.

Variation

As a class 2-3 children are foxes and the remainder of the class are in linked lines of 4-5 geese. Foxes may move about the area trying to tag the last child in any line.
