This game is great fun and an opportunity to teach girls about bats’ echo location.

 

Instructions

1.

Divide the girls into two groups. One group will form a circle; this will be the boundary. The others will be “bats” and “moths” inside the circle.  

2.

Blindfold one volunteer inside the circle; this girl will be the bat. The other girls in the circle are moths.

3.

The bat will periodically yell ‘’BAT!’’ and the moths will respond with ‘’MOTH!’’ Using only the sense of hearing, the bat will have to capture (tag) the moths that are trying to avoid getting caught.  

4.

If either bat or moths go too near the edge of the circle, the kids tap them twice on their shoulder. Once tagged, the moths join the circle. Girls can then take turns being bats, moths, and boundary markers.
