P.E. Central Lesson Plan: Stinger Tag
Suggested Grade Level:
3rd and Up
Materials Needed:
Cones for general space boundaries; One small ball per child (use three or four different colored balls; so you have three or four teams);
Lesson Plan:
Description of Idea

Line the students up and go down the line saying what color ball they are going to use (i.e., red, green, blue, and orange.) When you are done you will have 4 teams that have been assigned the same color ball to hold as they move and tag.

Have your students then spread out in the playing area. The teacher then calls out the "stinger" color. Once the color is called the "stingers" chase and tag the other colors. If a student is tagged they stand with both hands around the ball and in the air above their head. They wait there until another dodger comes along and tags them to set them free (any color can free them simply by tagging them).

Switch colors every couple minutes so everyone can be a tagger or "stinger."

Teaching Suggestions:

Must tag softly on the body so no one gets hurt.

Taggers cannot throw the balls at the dodgers to tag them.


Taggers can also hide what color they are so it makes everyone wary of others. This increases the aerobic workout for all!
