One person is designated as "it" and is given a dodgeball. "It" then chases the rest of the group throwing the ball at them. If someone is hit (has to be waist or below) they must sit down where they are hit. Once the ball is thrown, anyone may grab it and become "it." If the ball is caught, the thrower must sit down and the person who caught the ball is now "it." The twist is that someone who is sitting down can stand up and be back in the game if the person who hit them has to sit down. Therefore, the game does not end until 1 person ends up hitting every person (doesn't usually happen) or until you call an end to the game due to time.
Quick Game - Egg, Chicken, Dinosaur Years ago, a wonderful student teacher of mine taught me this game. It's now a favourite of mine! It's a good warm down game after fitness, requires no equipment & can be played indoors or outdoors.

Outline the boundaries - either with cones or lines on a basketball court. 3. Hand out the cards to 8 students. They are now "it". 4. When they tag someone they give them the card they have. That person who was tagged is now "it". They have to do whatever the card says & then chase after others trying to tag them so they can pass the card on. 5. Continue to play until they start to tire! *Here is
