Materials: Large space with safe zones defined

How to Play: Divide players into two teams. Each team decides on
first and second signs to use for Rock, Paper, Scissors, in case the
first round results in a tie. After the teams huddles, they line up
facing each other in the center of the playing field. The teams say,
“Rock, Paper, Scissors!” and flash their signs. The team that wins the
round tries to tag the other team as they run back to their safe zone.
If they get tagged, they join the winning team. The game begins again
with the huddle and continues.

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). Clarify
where each team’s safe zone is.

Variations: Everyone finds a player to do Rock, Paper,
Scissors. The loser gets behind the winner and starts a train. When
the trains meet, the players in the front do Rock, Paper, Scissors,
until the entire group is one long train.
