Shout Tag

Designate a large play area with clear boundaries that has room for students to run and enough items to be used as safe zones. Designate a person who is “it”. The person who is “it” shouts out something that the other players must touch to be safe from being tagged. For example: if “metal!” was shouted the other players must touch something nearby that is metal (fence, car, etc.). Others ideas to be shouted can include colors, other materials, shapes, etc. Only one person can be safe at the same place at a time. If tagged then join the original person who is “it” and jointly decide on another thing to shout.
