Instructions for Shipwreck
The instructor stands at the front of the room with a large group of students and calls out the following commands. This game is like a cross between Mother May I and Musical Chairs. If the students make a mistake, or dont have the correct number of students to do the command, they are knocked out of the game. The last student left in the game wins.
Note: It is helpful to orient the kids with north, south, east, west, before they start. Its also best to use the large group commands such as Mess Hall at the beginning while there is still a large number of players.
Mess Hall - (4 people) All four players sit in a circle and pretend theyre eating.
Lifeboat - (3 people) Three players sit on the floor in a row and they pretend to paddle a boat.
Man Overboard - (2 people) One person lays on the ground, the second person stands above them with one foot resting lightly on their chest. The standing person shields their eyes and scans the horizon.
Pirate - Stand on one leg, put one hand over your eye, use your other hand to touch the shoulder on the same side(like you had a parrot there), and yell Arrgh!
Turtle - Lay on your back, wave your hands and arms in the air, say, Turtle, turtle.
Submarine - Lay on your back and raise one leg straight up in the air like a periscope.
Compass - The instructor yells out North, South, East, or West.
Players turn that direction and run in place, double-time.
Hit the Deck - Drop to the floor, lay on your belly, and tuck your hands under your chin - elbows and forearms flat on the floor.
Most of all, have fun!
