Community Level 1 – Acquainted
Materials: Large, outdoor space marked with game boundaries
How To Play: Players partner up. One player stands behind the
other with her hands on the shoulders of the player in front of her.
Two players, or one set of partners, are unattached and moving in the
area around the partners. One of the unattached players is It and tries
to tag the other player. The player being chased can attach to the
back of a pair of players by placing his hands on shoulders. The player
in the front of the pair is then chased by the tagger.
Plan for Success:
Model and practice safe tagging (shoulders, back, arms) and the
Tagger’s Choice rule (if the tagger says she got you, she did).
Variations: See Elbow Tag for a slight variation on this game.
