- Review boundaries and rules, ask for questions.
A basketball court sized space, Evenly space cones on the outside of the boundaries.
How to Play
- Everyone moves within the boundaries trying to avoid each other.
- If a player grabs a flag, they must place it on the ground.
- Once a flag is on the ground, it is considered off limits.
- When a player loses her or his flag, s/he must get down on the ground (sitting or kneeling).
- In order to get back off the ground, a player who is kneeling may grab a runner's flag and place the flag in her or his pocket.
- Allow students to crawl on their knees while trying to regain a flag.
- Double Flag Tag which uses two flags per player.
- Both flags must be pulled before the player goes down to the ground.
