Blob Tag Project

  1. 1. Blob Tag Section 3: Tues.-Thurs. 11-12:15 Ashley Bues & Lyndsey Zellers Educational Tech. Service Project
  2. 2. The “BIG” Picture The concept is to establish a “scrapbook” of games/fun activities and pass them from their P.E. classes forward to the home and beyond. Learning Goals: <ul><ul><li>To increase the participant’s sense of personal confidence. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- All to increasingly view themselves as capable and competent </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Success/failure in a supportive group atmosphere </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To increase mutual support within a group </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Anyone who conscientiously tries should be respected </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Success/failure less important than making an effort </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Use of teams, points and timed competition consciously minimized </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To develop an increased level of agility and physical coordination </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To develop an increased joy in one’s physical self and in being with </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>others. </li></ul></ul>Rohnke, K.

  3. 3. <ul><li>Blob Tag is a game of tag with a twist. The players must form teams and when one team gets tagged they must join the “blob” and try to catch the other teams. </li></ul>Support Coordination Wellbeing Confidence <ul><li>It is a game for 10-30 students </li></ul><ul><li>The only material needed is a safe area to run. If the area is too large you may need to use something such as a cone to form a boundary. </li></ul>
  4. 4. TEKS Involved: <ul><li>Grade 3  </li></ul><ul><li>(b) Knowledge and skills. </li></ul><ul><li>Movement. The student demonstrates competency in fundamental movement </li></ul><ul><li>patterns and proficiency in a few specialized movement forms. The student is expected to: </li></ul><ul><li>travel in forward, sideways, and backwards and change direction quickly </li></ul><ul><li>and safely in dynamic situations; </li></ul><ul><li>(B) demonstrate proper form and smooth transitions during combinations of fundamental </li></ul><ul><li>locomotor and body control skills such as running and jumping safely in dynamic situations; </li></ul><ul><li>(C) demonstrate mature form in jogging, running, and leaping; </li></ul><ul><li>(D) demonstrate moving in and out of a balanced position with control; </li></ul><ul><li>(E) demonstrate proper body alignment in lifting, carrying, pushing, and pulling; </li></ul><ul><li>  (2) Movement. The student applies movement concepts and principles to the learning and </li></ul><ul><li>development of motor skills. The student is expected to:  </li></ul><ul><li>(B) know that practice, attention and effort are required to improve skills.  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Grade 4 </li></ul><ul><li>(7)  Social development. The student develops positive self-management and social skills </li></ul><ul><li>needed to work independently and with others in physical activity settings. The student is </li></ul><ul><li>expected to: </li></ul><ul><li>(A)  follow rules, procedures, and etiquette; </li></ul><ul><li>(D)  demonstrate effective communication, consideration and respect for the feelings of </li></ul><ul><li>others during physical activities such as encourage others, allow others equal turns, and </li></ul><ul><li>invite others to participate. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Step #1 Get the group of children to split up into teams of two and lock arms.
  6. 6. Step #2 Pick the team that will be “it” or “the blob.”
  7. 7. Step #3 All teams start running/fast walking to avoid being caught by the blob.
  8. 8. Step #4 Only players on the ends of the blob can tag the other teams.
  9. 9. Step #5 When teams are tagged they are added to the ends of the blob.
  10. 10. Step #6 If a group comes apart then they are caught and added into the blob.
  11. 11. Step #7 If the blob breaks they must forfeit a tag.
  12. 12. Step #8 If a team crosses a boundary then they are automatically caught by the blob.
  13. 13. Step #9 The activity goes on until there is only one team left out of the blob. They are the winners.
  14. 14. Possible Variations: <ul><li>add a foam sword to the end of the blob so when tagged they get a little bop </li></ul><ul><li>allow the blob to pivot in order to tag to make the activity a little more tricky </li></ul><ul><li>allow the blob to split in half after it has a certain amount to make the activity a little more complicated </li></ul>
