Spy in the Camp

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: Gwyneth Pocock

Choose one child to stand away from the main group or around the corner for a few seconds.

Choose another child to orchestrate movements. The whole class stand behind their chair and the orchestrator chooses a movement (e.g. clapping, jumping, swaying, mexican wave etc). Without directly looking at the orchestrator, the class follow the leader, changing the movements when the orchestrator dictates.

When the movement is in motion, the spy returns. He / she has to travel around the room trying to discover who is changing the movement, the trick for the orchestrator to only change the movement when the spy has their back to them.

The spy has 3 guesses and then the orchestrator becomes the spy in the camp. Another orchestrator is chosen.This is a great game with a musical theme.
