The Dragons are Coming!

Suggested Grades



Students will develop an awareness of and practice the mobility needed to run around with, and from, other children.


  • Have students all line up on one side of the gym or field.
  • Pick a dragon, and ask them to stand a few feet away. The rest of the students are villagers.
  • Yell out “The dragons are coming!” Students are to run away from the dragon. If they get tagged, they too become a dragon and have to chase the villagers.
  • Play until all the villagers have become dragons.
