PLAY TAG, BUT IN SLOW MOTION.
IMMENSELY ENTERTAINING IF PLAYED WELL; STUDENTS ARE NOT TO ESCAPE THE TAGGER BY MAKING A SUDDEN MOVEMENT, AND THE TAGGER CANNOT LASH OUT TO TAG ANOTHER STUDENT.
TELL STUDENTS TO BREATHE, SCREAM AND GROAN IN SLOW MOTION.
YOU MAY WANT TO HAVE THE STUDENTS EXERCISE WALKING IN SLOW MOTION FIRST, TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE AWARE OF HOW THEY (NATURALLY) MOVE, AND LEARN HOW TO STICK WITH THAT IN SLOW MOTION.
PURPOSE: ENCOURAGE LAUGHTER, FUN, BLOOD FLOW AND GETTING ENERGIZED AT THE START OF A DAY OR LESSON.
