Community Level 2 – Familiar

Materials: 2 scarves or ties

How To Play: Divide the class and form two lines. The player at
the front of each line becomes the dragon’s head and the player at the
end becomes the tail. Put a scarf or tie into the pocket or belt loop of
the tail. The object is for one dragon to catch the tail of the other
dragon. The dragon lines must stay together at all times with all
players placing their hands on the shoulders of the person in front of
them. If a dragon breaks apart, it must stop until it is whole again.

Plan for Success:Before
beginning the activity have each dragon decide how the players will let
the other parts of the dragon know to stop. Play a number of rounds
giving each dragon a chance to strategize about how to protect its tail
while getting the other’s tail. At the end of the activity, students
can reflect on what worked well and what did not.
