How To Play: The student selected to be the inspector steps out
of the room for a moment. All of the students close their eyes and the
teacher taps a student to be the bullfrog. The inspector comes back in
the room and stands in the center of the circle. The rest of the
students all make eye contact with one another across the circle. The
bullfrog will quickly make eye contact and sticks her tongue out. The
student who gets caught by the bullfrog waits three seconds and then
puts his head down. The bullfrog continues to capture students while
the inspector in the center tries to figure out who the bullfrog is. If
the inspector doesn’t choose correctly in three guesses the game is
over or another inspector is selected and the game can start over again.
Plan for Success:
Talk after the game about possible strategies for the inspector and for
the bullfrog for guessing correctly or going undetected, respectively.
