    A fantastic game for students in a small space!

    Older students had a challenge taking risks when we applied the “everyone is it” rule. Be sure to encourage all kiddos to take a risk and not guard their knees the entire time!

      Re the propensity for some people to guard their knees all the time, this is a perfect opportunity to talk about managing risk, and risk/reward continuum. Sometimes, I even introduce the game within the framework – “Are you feeling brave today, or would you prefer to play it safe…?”
