Oyster Dredging

Sailing - Activity 1

Number the children 1 and 2 to make two groups.

Numbers 1’s begin as oysters, Numbers 2’s as starfish (predators of oysters).

Number 2’s try to catch 1’s.  

When the starfish (number 2’s) tag an oyster, the oyster has to stand still in a star shape and can only be released from the position when another oyster crawls under the legs!

At any point the teacher can call “Dredge” and sweep across the room looking for any children that are moving.  

Any one that is moving sits out of the game.

This continues till all the children are out!
