Port and Starboard
The children imagine themselves on a ship. The Captain gives out orders to his mates on board. The mates respond with physical actions as follows:
1. Captain's coming - salute 2. Stand at ease - hands behind back 3. All hands on deck - kneeling position 4. Hit the deck - lying flat on the floor 5. Submarine - lying on back one leg up in the air. 6. Port - run to the left side 7. Starboard - run to the right side
These are only a few examples of movements. Feel free to add your own. Children are eliminated from the game after each order given by the Captain. The last to obey are counted as out.
