HIGHLIGHTS: Evading, Running, bending, twisting, stretching, Any exercise 

INSTRUCTIONS: Select 1 - 3 students to be the "its", depending on your class size and space.  Personally, I have the "its" wear a gold vest.  I keep the "its" near me while the remainder of the class is given time to scatter about the area.  On the signal, the "its" will attempt to tag the other players.  When a player gets tagged, he/she must use their body to form a tunnel.  Some examples might be: standing with feet spread, hands and feet touching with body arched, crab walk, one hand and one foot on the ground.  Anyway, encourage the students to be creative.  The teacher from whom I learned this game, would have some students demonstrate tunnels before the game started.  Anyway, back to the game.  Once a tagged, they must freeze in the form of a tunnel.  To become unfrozen, another student must go through their tunnel.  Once a player goes through the tunnel, the frozen player is now freed to rejoin the game.  Personally, I play that when you have been tagged three times you come to the sidelines, put on a gold vest, and rejoin the game as an "it".  The game ends when all the players are frozen or a given period of time ends the game.  
     If you want to have winners, there are several options:
          1.  The last 1 or 2 players to be frozen are the winners.
          2.  All players that are not an "it" at the end of the game are declared the winners.
          3.  At the end of time, if there are still players unfrozen, the players win.  If all the players are frozen by the "its" then the "its" win.
     However you decide to play this game, the students will enjoy it.  Personally, I will select the last two players to be frozen, as "its" for the next round.

HELPFUL HINTS: Stress the importance of safety when going through another players tunnel.  You may also want to add a rule that a player going through a tunnel cannot be tagged.  Personally, I think it is a good idea to recognize some of the most creative tunnels seen during a game.
     To add more exercise to this game, have newly freed players do an exercise before rejoining the game.
