This is a great active seasonal game when the weather is getting chilly. You might even see geese flying overhead while you play the game!
Explain that geese fly in a V-formation for many reasons. They follow the lead goose to stay on course, and they conserve energy by raising their wings when the goose ahead of them pushes their wings down, so they can use the updraft. Divide the class into groups of at least ten students and have them try to ‘fly’ around the schoolyard, running and flapping their wings, following the lead goose and staying in a V shape. They can also change the lead goose periodically to give the leader a rest.
This is a hilarious activity that is more difficult than it seems!
