ASK YOUR GROUP TO SPREAD THROUGHOUT A DESIGNATED AREA (USUALLY, BUT NOT ALWAYS OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM), STARTING MORE THAN AN ARMS LENGTH AWAY FROM EVERY OTHER PLAYER.
WHEN THE TEACHER CALLS “GO,” EVERYONE ATTEMPTS TO TAG EVERY BODY ELSE, WHILE ALSO AVOIDING BEING TAGGED.
ONCE TAGGED, SIMPLY CROUCH DOWN AND WAIT FOR GAME TO CONCLUDE. (IF TWO PEOPLE TAG EACH OTHER SIMULTANEOUSLY, THEY ARE BOTH OUT).
LAST PERSON STANDING IS THE WINNER.
PURPOSE: ENCOURAGE LAUGHTER, BLOOD FLOW AND GETTING ENERGIZED AT THE START OF A DAY OR LESSON.
