This lesson plan and diagram is for a large group physical education class game called "Capture the Pig". It is a fast paced, high energy and extremely fun CHASING, FLEEING, TAGGING AND DODGING game for students of all ages. Students attempt to navigate through the other team's players to steal pigs from the farmer guards. There are safe zones, and safe areas but stealing a pig is not an easy job! The students love this game and ask for it weekly! 

The students will leave the gym with smiles on their faces and will be dripping sweat from all of their movement. The game requires some large cones, hula hops, scrimmage bests and a few belts. You can replace pigs with anything else you have in your closet (ie. rubber chickens, rubber sharks, beanbags, etc.) Capture the Pig can be played indoors or out.
