How To Play: Each student thinks of a way to move across the
circle. They could crab walk, disco walk, skip, hop on one foot, walk on their
knees, etc. Choose one person to begin the greeting. The person who starts will
pick someone from across the circle that is the opposite gender to greet. The
first person then does her crazy walk across the circle and greets the other
person with a handshake, and then returns to her seat. The greeting continues
until everyone has been greeted.
Plan for Success: Brainstorm ideas for
different ways to walk across the circle before beginning the greeting. Consider
starting without the rule of greeting the opposite gender if an adequate level
of self-control has not been established.
