Step Tag


Any defined open area




Teacher nominates three or four students as taggers and they are given colour bands to wear. On signal the taggers run around keeping as close as they can to free runner without tagging. Teacher blows their whistle and the class must freeze position. Taggers on teachers signal are allowed to take one step or one leap to get closer to runners. If a tagger can touch a runner then the tagger and runner exchange colour bands and game continues. If a tagger cannot touch any runner then they remain taggers for the next game. It is advised for the teacher to allow 15-30 seconds of running before blowing the whistle.
