State Standard: 1, 3, 4
|Equipment: Parachute large enough for all to hold
|Purpose of Event: Movement, teamwork, Upper body strength, Move safely in general space|
|Time: 15-20 minutes|
Choose two players to be the sharks, who position themselves under the middle of the chute on all fours. On signal “go” standing players, shade the chute gently to create waves while the sharks swim around under the chute. Sharks gently grab the leg of a parachute player and pull that player under the chute. The two players change roles and repeat the game until everyone has been a shark.
|Concerns: Cautious moving around the parachute, could be slippery if stepped on. Watch were you are going.|
