Wolf, Shepherd, Sheep

Materials: None

How to Play: This game is an adapted version of Duck, Duck, Goose. Have all students sit in a circle facing one another. Choose one person to be it, the “wolf.” The “Wolf” walks around the outside of the circle gently tapping each seated player on the shoulder or head, saying “shepherd” each time. At random, the “Wolf” picks one player and says “sheep.” The player must get up and chase the wolf around the circle. If the “wolf” makes it around the full circle and sits down in the player’s spot before getting tagged, the “wolf” is safe and the other player is the new “wolf.” Play continues until the leader stops the game.
