How to Play Roar:

Children will sit in a line on one side of the playing area. One person will sit in the middle of the room with their back to the groups.

Directions:

  1. Pick one person to go sit in the center of the room and cover his/her eyes.
  2. Silently pick one student to be the lion.
  3. The student will crawl to the center of the room and roar as loud as they can, then scurry back to his/her place.
  4. Once she’s back, the person in the center will turn around and try to pick who the lion was.
  5. If he’s correct, the lion becomes the new person in the center. If not, the lion wins and the person turns back around and play continues.
