Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
Partner Crows and Cranes
All students have a partner and line up along two lines facing each other. The lines are about three feet apart. This is an individual game. The partners alternate calling out “Crows!” When one of the partners decides to call out “Cranes,” the other partner must take off and run back to a safety line without being tagged. If the chaser tags them, the chaser gets a point. Players return to the starting line and play again.
Assure students are spread out so they don’t run into each other.
Tagging is done with the back of the hand on the shoulder.
