Skills

Set Up:

  • Mark out a large area using cones

Description:

  • Choose 3-4 taggers depending on the numbers in your group. The remainder of the children run around the area trying to avoid being tagged. 
  • If a child gets tagged, they must stop where they are and do 'anything they want'. 
  • For example, a balance pose, a funny dance or star jumps. 
  • To be saved, another child must stand infront of them and try to copy what they are doing. 
  • For example, if a child is standing on one leg, another child must save them by also standing on one leg.
  • Once a child has been copied, they are free to run around and avoid being tagged again. 

Variations:

  • Have every child as a tagger! 
  • Change the method of locomotion while playing: try hopping, skipping or galloping

Teaching Points:

Running/Dodging

  • Ensure children have eyes up to avoid other children
  • Take short, quick steps to avoid being tagged and ready to change direction
