This Squirrels and Hawks lesson plan also includes:
Squirrels and hawks is a nutty version of capture the flag. Squirrels and hawks is played with three teams instead of two, and therefore has more action going on. Begin with all the nuts in the center of the play area, guarded by the hawks. The squirrels from the two other teams try to run in and steal the nuts. The hawks try to prevent them from taking the nuts back to their hole by tagging them and freezing them. Add other rules to adapt the game to fit your class. I recommend rotating the hawks.
