Community Level 1 – Acquainted
Materials: Large, open space
How To Play: Two or three players are It, and one player acts as
the doctor. Players move within boundaries and avoid being tagged by
When tagged the first time, a player places a hand where she was tagged
(as if covering the wound) and keeps moving to avoid being tagged again.
When tagged the second time, a player places his other hand over the new wound and keeps moving.
When tagged the third time, a player freezes and yells, “Doctor,
doctor!” The doctor heals the patient by tapping her shoulder. The
player is then free to participate again.
Plan for Success: Model and practice safe tagging. Determine whether players will be walking fast or running within the boundaries.
