While teachers are used to some bizarre behavior from children trying to navigate the world one mnemonic device at a time, recess can really escalate the chaos to a whole new level. Games of "Red Rover" that break limbs, kids throwing all kinds of inedible items into their mouths in the name of a dare, or just overall unhinged madness can often be expected. After sitting inside for hours and trying to focus on math they'll probably never use in their future, the twenty minutes that kids get swing on a giant recycled tire can be a weird wonderland of wood chips and hot pavement.
So, when a Reddit user asked, "Teachers of reddit, what's the weirdest thing you saw a kid do at recess?" people were ready to share the wildest things they witnessed on the playground.
I have a group of 5th graders try to summon a demon, the year before Covid-19 hit. We had to have a discussion about school not being an appropriate place to summon demons. They all agreed the it was not an appropriate place and it would be terrible if a kindergartner got a demonic attachment. - immadickgirl
