Teach everyone the following three characters: Giant: Stand tall with hands over head and fingers curled in and making a growling noise. Wizard: Hunch shoulders and hold out an imaginary wand shouting “kazaam”. Elves: Crouch down and cup hands for big ears making “shrieking” noises. • Similar to “Rock, Paper, Scissor” game. Students must be divided into two teams, each team convenes to choose which character to be. • Teams then line up in center of the gym facing each other (roughly 5-10 feet apart). • Together teams call out 1, 2 ,3… and reveal their characters. • The winning team then chases the losing team back to their safe zone (designate before game begins). Any teammates that are caught must join the opposing team. • GIANTS beat WIZARDS • WIZARDS beat ELVES • ELVES beat GIANTS • If same characters are drawn, a tie is announced and teams reconvene and pick a new character. To switch game up or add more action, have children change their locomotive (have both teams skip or hop rather then run).
