Coraling the Herd
For pairs of players, holding two pool noodles each, catch the herd and move them to the corner of the field (playing area)
-Aptitudes motrices fondamentales:
Four pool noodles for every 8-15 players
-Mise en place:
Two players out of every 8-15 players are given two pool noodles each.
The rest of the players are in a scattered position throughout the playing area.
The two players with pool noodles try and catch a player inbetween their four pool noodles and bring them to a corner of the playing area.
Once there are a few players in the corners, the leader can call out "stampede" and the herd is back onto the field (playing area) again.
Switch the herders from time-to-time.
-Questions et notes:
Have all players gallop or skip or...
Questions for Understanding:
How can the herders most effectively capture the herd?
How can the herd most effetively not get caught?
