Chalk to draw lines on the ground


Cheetahs and Cheetals – a game from India
The cheetah is a spotted cat and a cheetal is a spotted deer. To begin the game three parallel lines are drawn on the ground about twenty feet apart. A leader is chosen and the other players divide into two teams, the cheetahs and the cheetals. The two teams stand back to back along the center line. The leader calls out loudly, ‘Chee-ee-ee’ and then suddenly ends with ‘tals’ or ‘tahs.’ If the word is cheetahs, the cheetahs run to the line they are facing with the cheetals in hot pursuit. If the word is cheetals, they are pursued. Those tagged are out. From
