At Grassroots, we don’t have traditional PE classes because we get plenty of exercise all day. The kids play many traditional playground games like Tag, Hide and Seek, Capture the Flag, etc. Today, the kids were playing, “What Time is it, Mr. Wolf?” and you can see from their smiles that they had fun outrunning the wolf.
To play the game, select one player to be the wolf. All the other players line up side by side some distance away from the wolf. The players call out, “What time is it, Mr. Wolf?”
The wolf answers by saying, “It’s 2 o’clock” or some other number from 1 to 12. The players take that many steps toward the wolf’s lair. The players keep asking the time and the wolf keeps telling them a number until he or she gets “hungry” and yells “Dinner Time!”
Once the wolf calls a meal time, the other players run back toward the base and the wolf gives chase. If the wolf tags someone, that person becomes the wolf for the next round.
