Oklahoma Agriculture in the Classroom



Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Month

June 17 is Eat Your Vegetables Day
Fruits and Veggies Game
  1. Divide players into two equal lines, one called "Fruit" and the other called "Veggies."
  2. Teams stand about five feet apart, facing each other on opposite sides of a center line.
  3. Behind each group of players and about 25 feet away, is a goal line.
  4. When the game leader calls out "Fruits!" that group turns and runs toward its own goal line, with the Veggies in pursuit.
  5. Any Fruit tagged before crossing the line joins the other side.
  6. The action continues with the leader giving each side a fairly even number of chances to chase their oponents.
