Action Influence Tag

Tell the group that you are playing a free for all tag game. Hand a card to each person. Have them look at the card. The action word on the card dictates how they must move during the tag game. Once everyone has looked at the card they begin chasing one another. When a person is tagged another, they person take on the action of the person who tagged them. See if you can go until everyone is doing the same movement or if there is any movement that “dies” out.

Talk about influence and how ideas die out. How do actions, ideas or beliefs spread? Why do actions, ideas, or beliefs die out? Do only the good actions, ideas, beliefs spread? Why or why not? Do only bad actions, ideas, beliefs die out? Why or Why not?
