NAME OF ACTIVITY:
Chasing, Fleeing, Any exercise you choose, Great Warm-Up
game is very simple and a great energizer for getting your kids
moving. I use this game when I have a small amount of time at the
end of a class, or to get the kids moving at the beginning of the class.
Designate the playing area and the
boundaries. Have the students spread about in a scatter
formation. On the signal to begin, all students are "It"
and may tag any other student. Once a player is tagged, they leave
the playing area to perform the designated exercise or skill. For
example, when you get tagged you must leave the area, perform 10 jumping
jacks, then you may enter the game again. If two players tag each
other at the same time, they must both leave the playing area.
I found that this game works better if you designate a couple entrances to
the play area.
Otherwise students will enter from anywhere and you will see players
tagging at the edge of the boundaries.
You can also vary the exercises performed
after being tagged. For example, the first time you are tagged, you
do Jumping Jacks, second time you do crunches, etc.
