The children sit down in a circle. The game leader is holding a ball. The leader throws it to another player, and at the same time says one of these three words: earth, water, or air. If they say “water,” this means that the player to whom they’re throwing the ball has to catch it and name an animal that lives in the water, like a whale. If they say “air,” then the player has to name an animal that can fly, like a bird, insect, or bat. If they say “earth,” then players can only name those animals that can’t fly and don’t live in the water, like cows.
