Snowed in?

  1. Updates

Since the weather has been so cold and snowy this winter, it’s difficult for the kids to go outside and play. Triangle tag is a game that can be played indoors to keep kids active and having fun!

Triangle Tag: Video can be seen here.

Purpose: To have students work together and practice their chasing, fleeing, and dodging skills.

Have students form groups of three and join hands around a flat cone. The fourth group member will be outside the circle of three that are holding hands. He/She will be the “Tagger”. Then designate one person in the circle as the “Runner”.

On the signal the “Tagger” will try and tag the “runner”. The group holding hands will work together to try and protect the “runner” by moving in a clockwise or counter clockwise motion around the cone. The “Tagger” is not allowed to reach through, under, or over to tag but must go on the outside of the triangle.

Play for a designated amount of time and if they tag the “runner” then the roles are switched.
