Alligator Attack!

Must cross the river without being tagged by the alligator




Mark two parallel lines on the floor, about fifteen metres apart. Divide the scouts into two teams and number them so that each team has a number one, two, three etc. Teams line up behind either line with one scout between the lines. He is “It” or, if you like, the alligator in the river, who will patrol up and down. Call out a number and the two so-numbered scouts have to get to the other side of the river without being tagged. If a scout is tagged he becomes the alligator and the alligator takes the scout’s number. If one scout gets across the river before the other one has started to cross then the one who has yet to start becomes the alligator.
