NAME OF ACTIVITY: Toilet Tag
GRADE LEVEL: K-6
HIGHLIGHTS: Running, Evading, Safety in large group movement. Any exercise
Select 1-3 students to be the "its" (depending on class size and
area). Personally, I identify the "its" by having them
wear a gold vest. To start the game, I have the "its" stay
near me, as the rest of the class scatters about the playing area.
On my signal, the "its" will attempt to tag the players.
When a player is tagged, he/she must assume a toilet position (one knee on
the ground and the other knee up, one arm straight out to the side).
The tagged player must remain frozen in this position until they are
rescued by another player. To be rescued, a player must sit on the
knee of the frozen player, grab their straight arm and make a WHOOSH sound
while pulling the arm down to simulate the flushing of a commode.
Once a player flushes the toilet of a frozen player, the frozen player is
freed. Personally, I play once a player is tagged three times, they
come to the sideline, get a vest and re-enter the game as an
"it". The game ends when a certain time limit has been met
or when all players are frozen.
HELPFUL HINTS: To add more exercise to this game, have newly freed players perform an exercise before re-joining the game.
