Indoor Marco Polo

Choose one student to be ‘it’ and another student to be his/her guide. Have the rest of students spread out in the space and review that they are walking, not running.  The student that is ‘it’ closes his/her eyes and calls out ‘Marco’ and all the other students respond ‘Polo.’ The student that is ‘it’ moves toward the rest of the students, trying to tag them, with help from the guide, who places his/her hands on the shoulders of the student that’s ‘it’ and directs him/her away from objects throughout the room. Those who are not it cannot run around the room, they can only take a few steps each time Marco is called. When someone is tagged, the student who was ‘it’ becomes the new guide.
