Big Whale




Equipment: None



Choose two players to be the Whales. All the other players go to any wall. Once all the players are touching a wall, the Whales call out:


"I'm a great big whale at the bottom of the sea,"


All the other players call out:


"I'm a little fish and you can't catch me!"


The players must try to run into the middle circle of the gym without being tagged by a Whale. Whales may not enter the middle circle and they shouldn't be standing too close to the wall during the chant. Anyone who was tagged becomes a Whale and stands outside of the circle. The Whales do their chant again and the other players respond, but this time they must run from the circle to the wall without being tagged. Then the next round they return to the circle, etc. The game ends when everyone has been tagged.
