NAME OF ACTIVITY: Blob Tag
GRADE LEVEL: Any
EQUIPMENT: None or 2 foam noodles
HIGHLIGHTS: Cooperation, Teamwork, Evading
Select 1 or 2 students to begin the blob ("its"). The rest
of the players will scatter about the playing area. On the signal,
the "it" or future blob will attempt to tag the other
players. A player getting tagged, must join (literally, they must
join a hand) the "it" and continue developing the blob.
These 2 players must now stay joined and attempt to tag other
players. As more players get tagged, they must add onto the outside
of the blob. So, at any one time, the blob will only have two hands
available for tagging (one on each end). The more players that get
tagged, the larger the blob grows. The object of the game is to be
the last player captured by the BLOB. Following are some rules to
HELPFUL HINTS: I usually have student who will try to run and slide under the BLOB. There are two ways to stop this. One is to make a rule that you can not go over or under the BLOB or two, if they touch any part of the BLOB, they are tagged.
