Kyle McMahon, physical education teacher at Anderson Grove Elementary, hhas created a fun and healthy spin on traditional freeze tag. He calls it Healthy Heroes Tag. In this version, several students are assigned to be taggers, several are assigned to be fruit and veggie heroes and the remainder are active tag participants.
The taggers are labeled as "junk food." Once a student is tagged, he must freeze as his energy has been zapped. This represents what unhealthy food choices do to our bodies. The student stays frozen until the "fruit and veggie heroes" can come to the rescue. Students assigned as heroes are given a fruit or veggie Garden Hero. Heroes tag the frozen students and fuel them with nutrients which gives them the energy needed to go back into play! Take a look at the video below to see this awesome game in action!
