My first and second graders love tag games. This is a fun spin on frozen tag.
4-5 blue yarn balls
3 red yarn balls
The blue yarn balls represent “ice”. Students with ice are “it” and try and tag others. If you are tagged by ice you must freeze. I have them put their arms up so everyone can tell they are frozen. The red balls represent “fire”. Students with fire try and save frozen students by unthawing the ice (tagging with red ball). Stop the game every 3-4 minutes and trade out who is playing fire and ice.
