American children’s game – duck duck goose – fun facts – American culture for kids

Duck, Duck, Goose is a game played by children across America.  Children sit in a circle and one player, the “fox”, walks around the circle tapping each player’s head and saying “duck” until the fox taps one player’s head and calls out “goose!”  The goose must jump up, chase the fox around the circle and attempt to tag the fox before the fox can sit down in the goose’s empty space.  If the fox sits down safely, the goose becomes the fox.  If the fox is tagged (s)he must continue to be “it”.
