Crazy Walk

For Middle Level & Elementary

Thanks to Mrs. Craig's 4-6 Grade Class, Valley Crossing Community School, Woodbury, MN

Materials: None

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.
