Where Did It Go?

  1. Tag Games
  • Grades 1-2

  • No equipment needed

Development Goal

To develop listening to directions

Before You Start

  • Demonstrate safe tagging:
    • Light touch, like butterfly wings on the shoulder
    • Unsafe tags: hard contact that might cause the person being tagged to fall


Set Up

Designate seeking/hiding area and a base

How to Play

  • One person is designated as the person who is it and hides away from the group.
  • The rest of the players stay at the designated “base” and sing “tell me where to go, tell me where to go…” for 15 seconds.
  • Then players go and search for the person who is it.
  • Whoever finds the ‘it’ person hiding yells “It went over here!” and all the players away from base must run back to base before being tagged by the ghost.
  • Whoever was tagged becomes the next person to hide.
