Scarecrow Tag


Any defined open area




Depending on the size of the class the teacher nominates taggers. Taggers all put on colour bands and run around the area attempting to tag as many scarecrows as they can in a designated time (1-2minutes). Once tagged, free runners must stand still with feed wide astride and with arms outstretched above their head like scarecrows in a field. Scarecrows can be released by free runners if a runner crawls between their legs from the rear only. Once freed scarecrows become free runners again. Game continues until set time limit is up and teacher blows the whistle. The teacher then counts the number of remaining scarecrows and gives that score to the group of taggers. A new group of taggers then commences a new game.


Have one tagger and change locomotion type every 20 seconds.
