Catch the Dragon’s Tail
Teamwork, Gross Motor
6 or more
Place the children in a single-file line. The children should place their hands on the shoulders of the child in front of them.
1. In this game, students will need to form a straight line (dragon) with their hands on the shoulders of the person in front of them.
2. The objective of this activity is for the first child in line to be able to tag the last child in line (catch the dragon’s tail).
3. On ‘go’ the first child in line has to start moving towards the last child in line. The challenge is that ‘all’ the children must travel together with their hands always on the shoulders of the child in front them. If the line / chain of kids breaks, the children must regroup and then start again.
4. Remind students of ways to play the game safely.
