Game Description: 
Navigate the rocky waters to get to the lighthouse
Try to get to the light house first
Game Rules: 
One player is designated to be the lighthouse. One quarter of the players assumes the role of “rocks” and they scatter in a bounded area. All the other students become ships and boats of various sizes. The ships blindly navigate their way (eyes closed) their way about, attempting to reach the safety of the lighthouse. If a boat bumps into a rock, the boat becomes and extension of the existing rock and makes the noise “swish” (water lapping against the rocks). The lighthouse constantly goes “Beep! Beep! Beep!” to help the ships reach the safety of the lighthouse.
Saftey Considerations: 
Make sure you have a cleared space and an adult actively supervising to avoid any injuries.
Adaptations (optional): 
Children finding it difficult to navigate the playing field with their eyes closed can be given a "guide boat" who keeps their eyes open and instructs the other boat where to go
