Water Cycle Race

Thanks to Margaret Jones who posted this game to the Mailing List!

Equipment Needed: a bucket of water and a Veggie Ziploc Bag (the ones with holes in them) for each team

Players: In teams of five

Divide the girls in teams of 5 in a line quite widely spaced. Place the bucket of water at the start. The girls within the line are also spread far apart. On 'go' the first girl takes and fills the Ziploc (she is the Cloud) and twirls while advancing to the next girl. She passes on the bag. The second girl is the Mountain. She runs the bag of water to the third girl, who is the Rain. The Rain hops on one foot to the fourth girl, who is the River. The River and winds her way - zigzagging to the next girl and passes on the bag. The fifth girl is the Ocean and she takes the bag and Waves all the way back down to the bucket (at the beginning of the line).

She fills up the bag and is now the Cloud....(the previous first girl is now the Rain) get the picture? The girls have to listen to the directions as they will have to remember 'what' they are and the action for it. They will get lots of encouragement and cheering from their team! The relay continues until the first girl or cloud is the ocean and waves her way down to the bucket.

Everyone gets a bit wet...the Waves have a great time! (Actually EVERYBODY does!) It's an amusing hands on way to understand the water cycle.
