Grade Level: 3-5, 6-8

It is like fox and rabbits with a twist of rock paper scissors. Students will be split into two groups. In each group, the students will either be a centipede, chicken, or dragon.

Dragon beats Chicken, Chicken Beats Centipede, Centipede beats Dragon

The objective of this game is to get everybody into one team. The way to do this is by tagging someone from the other team. Once they are tagged then they have to switch to the other team. Once everybody is on the same team then the game is over.

Example: If a centipede manages to tag a dragon from the other team, then that dragon has to switch teams. However, the centipede cannot tag a chicken since a centipede cannot beat a chicken.
