I made this simple game for my students to play at the end of May right before school gets out.
*Have students sit in a circle and close their eyes.
*Quietly tap one of the students on the shoulder and pass them the watermelon picture. Have that student hide the watermelon picture.
*Start the game by saying….Who took the watermelon from the watermelon patch?
*Students will raise their hands if they think they know who has the watermelon card.
*Call on a student to say a name.
*Insert that name into the rhyme.
*If that student doesn’t have the watermelon, then they’ll say,”Who me? … Couldn’t be!” Then that student will have to say the name of someone that they think has the watermelon after the class says “Then who?”
“_______ took the watermelon from the watermelon patch!”
*Continue playing until the person who has the watermelon is discovered: “Who me?” “Yes you!” “You’re right!”
*Start the game over and repeat the procedure until students tire of the activity.
