Grandmother’s Footsteps Activity

Grandmother’s Footsteps Activity

Based on an old American standard game, Red Light, Green Light, and perfect for a cold and rainy day. Great for 3rd grade and up – similar to Red Light but without a verbal signal for older students. You might ask them to play the game as a character from a book you are reading would play the game. Then ask them why they made the choices they did. This stretches them into personality traits. Great way to talk about inside and outside character traits.
