Big Bear Tag


P.E. & Health

Title – Big Bear Tag

By – Dan Carrigan

Primary Subject – Health / Physical Education

Grade Level – 2-5

Teacher chooses two students to be big bears (taggers) and two students to be doctors (unfreezers). When the teacher says “go,” the students will perform a locomotor activity designated by the teacher to avoid being tagged by the big bears. If a student gets tagged they must freeze and stay in that spot until one of the two doctor comes over and heals them (unfreezing the student and sending him back into motion) by touching them on the shoulder. Doctors can not be tagged by the big bears. The big bears will wear one color jersey and the doctors will wear another. To ensure safety, tags must be made between the waste and the shoulder. A soft Nerf type ball should also be used to tag students. This game can go on for thirty seconds or so until it is a good idea to freeze the students and switch students around for new big bears and new taggers.
