Specifications

Time Required: 10 Minutes

Set Up:

Classroom with chairs and space to move.

Before You Start:

Make sure all students understand how to tag properly
Review that everyone gets one turn, and that students should "take the spot of the student they've tagged

How to Play:

Everyone begins standing behind his/her chair.
A student is chosen to begin, and s/he must quickly tag another student and sit in his/her chair.
The student that's been tagged must tag another student and take his/her spot.
Each student may only have one turn per round (tip ' have students raise their hands if they have not had a turn yet).
Each student has 5 seconds to tag another student, and the adult facilitates the game by counting down loudly for each student.

Variations:

Students can move in pairs.
Students can have more or less time.
Students can be required to do a special "high-five" to "tag" someone.
Students in the class can work together as a team to reach a certain time goal.
