ABC Identification Freeze Tag

Author: Sue Wyman
Lesson Plan:

One or two children are given "Boffers" to use as safe taggers. When a child is tagged, they must freeze and can only become unfrozen when they tell the teacher who is circulating around, a word that begins with the letter that is agreed to at the beginning of the round. For instance, these taggers will freeze you and you must think of A words to become unfrozen. More teachers in the class help to keep things moving. Make sure to tell children they may only use a word one time. If larger area you can add more taggers. "Boffers" are from "New Games" book and are styrofoam swords that allow for tagging without contact and injury.
