- Language Play and Physical Play
The classic game of Simon says when children must respond to orders given by 'Simon' in the corrrect way.
At School 10
One of the people is 'it'. The others must do what Simon tells them to do when asked with a phrase beginning with 'Simon says'. If Simon says 'Simon says jump', the players must jump (players that do not jump are out). However, if Simon says simply 'jump', without first saying 'Simon says', players do not jump; those that do jump are out. It is Simon's task to try to get everyone out as quickly as possible, and it is every one else's job to stay 'in' for as long as possible. The last of Simon's followers to stay in wins, although the game is not always played all the way through.
