Spider & Flies

My 3rd and 4th graders had a blast playing this game today. I liked it because it was easy to do for a few minutes and it really got them moving.
Spider and Flies:
One person is the spider. The rest of the class lines up against one wall. They have to run to the opposite wall without getting tagged by the spider. Anyone who the spider tags sits down where they were tagged and become part of the “web”. The spider can run anywhere, but the webs have to stay in one place, but can also tag anyone within reach. After all children reach the wall, I blow my whistle and those remaining run back trying to avoid spiders and webs. Repeat until all children are caught. I let the last person standing become the next spider.
