Community Level 1 – Acquainted
Materials: An open space with marked boundaries, a center line, and a safety zone for two groups
How to Play: Create two equal groups and have them stand in two
lines facing the center. A caller will say either “Crows” or “Cranes.”
If the caller says, “Crows,” the crows will cross over the center line
and try to tag the Cranes before they reach their safety zone. If a
Crow tags a Crane, she will come to the other side and become a Crow.
The process continues with the caller and each group acting accordingly.
Plan for Success:
Model and practice safe tagging (shoulders, back, arms) and the
Tagger’s Choice rule (if the tagger says he got you, he did). Be sure to
review good sportsmanship as some students will have to change sides.
