Old Grey Cat

Grade level: K-4
Equipment: None
Game Description: Old Grey Cat is a great game for younger students. It’s a fleeing and chasing game with a chant that will get stuck in your head and annoy you for the rest of the day: ‘We are weak little birds way up in a tree, you’re an old grey cat and you can’t catch me’. Read More →

Dead Ant Tag

Grade level: K-5
Equipment: None
Game Description: Hilarious idea for a simple tag game: if a player gets tagged, he must turn over on his back and put arms and legs up in the air like a dead ant on its back. To get back up? 4 players who aren’t tagged must attach themselves to an arm or leg and then that player is free. Read More →

The Video Camera Game

Grade level: K-5
Equipment: None
Game Description: Very simple warm-up game with a simple idea: the teacher calls out familiar actions that you would find on a video camera – play, stop, rewind, fast forward, etc. For each word that’s called out, the students will have to perform the related action within the playing area. Call random orders and mix it up! Switch leaders after awhile too to create their own patterns or sequences. Here’s what we have to get you started: Read More →

Shark Attack

Grade level: 1-6
Equipment: None
Game Description: This game is a huge hit. It is very similar to a British Bulldog-type game, however, Shark Attack brings players to the beach for change of scenery. The idea is for the swimmers to not get bit (tagged) by the sharks in the middle. Read More →

Mousetrap!

Grade level: K-5
Equipment: None
Game Description: A super easy, super fun game for the earlier-aged students. In mousetrap, the mice try to steal the cheese from the middle of the circle, and return it to their home outside of the circle. But they must be careful to time it just right, or else the mousetrap will close in and trap them! Good for laughs and good for exercise. Read More →
