    which way up the crates, `TOP', she faced me

    You can tell which way up the crates have to be because they all say 'TOP'.
    I fell supine to the ground when she faced me and knocked me down.

    Please explain the emboldened parts/words to me.

    Not a teacher.

    You can tell which way up the crates have to be because they all say 'TOP'.
    It should read, "You can tell which way the crates have to be because they all say 'TOP'."

    It means that you can tell which side of the crate is the top side because it has the word "top" on it. You can tell how to stack the crates (which way the crates have to be) based off of where the word "top" appears.

    I fell supine to the ground when she faced me and knocked me down.
    When someone "faces" you, that means they turn from where they were looking and look at you. It could also mean that they reposition their body to be fully directed towards you.

    Some crates have "This side, face up" and an arrow showing the upside of the crate.
