P.E. Central Lesson Plan: Skunk Tag
Purpose of Activity:
To help students practice their chasing, fleeing, and dodging skills
Suggested Grade Level:
1-2
Materials Needed:
5 hula hoops; 4 medium-sized nerf balls
Lesson Plan:
Description of Idea

Place 4 hula hoops in each corner of the gym ("safety zones") with the 5th hula hoop in the middle (the "skunk house").

Choose 4 students to be skunks. Each skunk has a nerf ball which is called a stink bomb. On your "go" signal the game will begin. The skunks chase the other students and try to tag them with their "stink bomb"; the skunks must touch students with -- not throw -- the stink bomb. A tagged student must take the stink bomb away from the skunk who tagged him/her, go to the skunk house, and announce "I'm a new skunk" before he/she can leave the skunk house and tag anyone. (The old skunk now tries not to get tagged again.)

Students being chased may enter a safety zone at any time to avoid being tagged, although only two students can be in a safety zone at a time. Students may stay in a safety zone only for a count of five. The skunk is allowed to wait until students are finished counting, so students must be smart on how they leave the safety zone.

Start a new game after a few minutes. You may wish to discuss the strategies which students use to keep from getting tagged (fleeing using fast speed; changing pathways; etc.) as well as those they use to safely exit the safety zone (wait until a skunk is distracted by another student who may be leaving the zone; changing levels as they exit the safety zone; fake exiting one direction and leaving by another).

Teaching Suggestions:

Skunks may not tag students who have fallen on the ground.

You may decide that your students may not guard the safety zones.
