Equipment: large area for running
Objective: provide opportunites for good sportsmanship, team work and group cooperation
Description: Have group sit in a circle and group leader will ask who knows how to play rock paper scissors? Ask an individual to visually demonstrate to the group the objectives of the game. After sample rounds between leader and volunteer ask group to identify which player "won" each round to be sure everyone understands. Divide group into 2 equal groups and explain that they will choose a collective group signal. They will return to center of room and line up across from the other team. Be sure that they are standing about an arms length apart from the people on their sides and one step apart from the person in front of them. On the count of "rock, paper, scissors" each team will flash their signal. Depending on the outcome of the encounter, participants must attempt to capture opposing team members using a light tag (if they win) or retreat to their safe zone (if they lose). Be sure to review this process carefully with participants as it can be confusing. Game ends when one team successfully captures all members of the opposing team.
