Description

It's a kind of catch-and-throw mix activity. You need a soft, not very bouncing ball. We need a volunteer, he will be the host of the virus, or the number one infected. Whoever is infected can be the ball and the ball can touch others, thus transmitting the infection. However, when the ball is in your hand, you cannot move out of place, your feet will stick to the ground. From this position, you should try to infect others (the first can be activity leader so you don’t get stuck in the game). It is in the interest of those infected to infect others. They can pass the ball to each other, but if they have it, they can’t move out of place. As the number of infected grows, they need to collude better and better to encircle and catch the uninfected. The playing field must be precisely designated. If it is too big, it will be very difficult to catch all the players.
