writes: 'Purpose: to get whole class changed to hounds.
Start: Choose one or two children to be 'Hounds' They're horrible, & chase the nice 'Hares'.
Hounds have band in their hand (folded, so they don't whack with it).
Rest of class wear a band (any colour). They are the hares.
Define playing area - going out of bounds means hare is 'out'.
Hares run away. On signal, hounds begin chase. They tig a hare & shout 'tig'. Hare stops, takes off band, & now becomes a hound & helps tig hares.
As game progresses, hares diminish & hounds grow. Last hare has whole class chasing him! If you don't have bands, try tucking in shirts for hares, & pulling out shirts for hounds..'
