PE Games: Turtle Tag

Tag Games For PE – Turtle Tag Overview

So this PE warm up game may have to go in the hall of fame. 🙌

There is nothing better than playing a game/activity for the first time and realizing it’s going to be a huge hit!

I created this game a few years ago, and it instantly became a class favorite for my students in grades K-2.

How To Play:

-Select 2-3 taggers to be it.

Teaching Hack – I always use pool noodles to eliminate students from falling down or getting tagged to hard

-Everyone else will be trying to stay away from the taggers

-The only safe spot in the game is going inside your turtle shell. To do this, students will get down on the ground and cover their head. If a student is inside their shell, they are safe and can’t be tagged.

-If a student does get tagged, they will lay on their back and put their hands and feet up in the air. We call this being a turtle on its back. In order to get back in, another student must come over and grab both hands and help them back to their feet.

-Be sure to switch taggers every 2-3 minutes and have fun!

  1. How do you keep all the kids from turtle-ing and not running around? Do you put any parameters on how long they can be in their shell?
