Beaches, Bridges, & Boats

Game Description: 
In this fun tag game you can escape the taggers by running over bridges, taking a boat, or staying on the beach!
Try not to get tagged or else you become a tagger!
Game Rules: 
Designate an area for the beach and for the water. Tell students they are not allowed in the water and must stay on the beach. Assign one child as the tagger. They must try to tag as many people as possible! If tagged, that student becomes a tagger. Continue playing until all children are tagged. Play the variations below to add to the game.
Saftey Considerations: 
Only one child is allowed on a bridge or boat at a time.
Progression (optional): 
Round 2: Add bridges by placing blocks over the water. Children can escape the taggers by moving across the bridge, but only 1 child on the bridge at a time! Round 3: Add boats by placing hoops in the water. Children can escape the taggers by moving in the hoop through the water for a maximum of 10 seconds!
