Hawk And Hen

Source: Games And Play For School Morale
Category: Sixth Grade

A file of ten or twelve players, so-called "hens," stand in line behind
each other, hands on shoulders of player in front. The first player
raises her arms shoulder high to protect those behind her. One player,
the "hawk," tries to catch one of the hens, not the first and second of
the file. The first hen must face the hawk throughout all the movements
and in order to keep out of the hawk's reach, all the other hens must
keep in line with her. A hen caught is out of the play. Both the hawk
and first hen take position at rear end of the file, the next two hens
becoming hawk and hen.
