Fish finding game

Level: Basic | Intermediate | Advanced | All

What You Need

At least 8 people.

Here's What You Do:

  • Have one person be the dolphin, four people will be objects and three will be fish.
    • The dolphin must keep their eyes closed (no cheating!!). 
    • Objects are to lay, sit or stand in one place. 
    • Fish move around slowly winding in and out of objects. 
  • The dolphin tries to locate a fish.
    • The dolphin makes a noise, “beep” and any object or fish in front of the dolphin is required to respond. 
    • objects will say, “object”, and
    • Fish will say, “fish”.
  • Once the dolphin touches a fish
    • The tagged fish becomes the dolphin
    • the objects and fish switch.

Now try this:

  • Have the dolphin beep continuously. Does this make it easier to find the fish?

Other things to try:

  • If the dolphin is having trouble locating fish or if the fish are misbehaving, have the fish move one step per beep or simply have them stand still
