Snake Dodgeball

Game Description: 
A cooperative Dodge Ball game where a team (the snake) works together to protect the last person in line (the tail).
Snake (line of students) wants to last as long as possible in the middle of the circle. This is achieved by working together to protect the last person in line.
Game Rules: 
Select a number of students to stand in a single file line placing their hands on the shoulders of the person in front of them. All other students make a circle around the students. With one dodgeball, the students in the circle try to hit the person at the end of the line. The line in the middle must work together moving around so their 'tail' does not get hit with a ball. Once the tail gets hit with the ball they join the outside circle. Dip, dodge and duck! Do not hit students in the head with the dodgeball.
Saftey Considerations: 
As with any dodge ball game, remind the students that head shots do not count and for them to be aware of the dodge ball at all times.
