Crows and Cranes

This Crows and Cranes activity & project also includes:

After separating the class into two teams—crows and cranes—each team lines up in the middle line of the gym with their backs facing each other. If the teacher yells out "cranes!" then all the cranes run to their side of the gym while the crows chase them. If a crane is tagged by a crow, then that person becomes a crow.
