Duck, Duck, Goose

This is a [Other] pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 13512)

Exercise should be fun.... I take my class outside and we go to a big field. We get in a huge circle and warm up by doing jumping jacks, straddle runs sideways, karaoke's, and jogging in place. Then we play an old fashioned game of duck, duck, goose. Everyone is on their feet and jogging in place when I start the game. I run around saying "duck, duck, duck" until I find my victim and tag them with a "goose". I run around the outside of the circle until I reach the space that the person vacated. They try to catch me. If they can tag me I remain "it". If I reach the space first, I am safe. The new "it" continues the game by doing their own "duck, duck, goose." Meanwhile, I have directed everyone jogging in the circle to do either jumping jacks or plyo jumps. The variations are endless and people get really competitive. It is a lot of fun. I also set a two time "it" rule. If someone is "it" twice in row, they get to choose the next "it". This keeps a slower individual from getting stuck as "it". Have fun.
