2. The BIG Picture The concept is to establish a scrapbook of games/fun activities and pass them from their P.E. classesforward to the home and beyond. Learning Goals:
- To increase the participants sense of personal confidence.
- - All to increasingly view themselves as capable and competent
- - Success/failure in a supportive group atmosphere
- To increase mutual support within a group
- - Anyone who conscientiously tries should be respected
- - Success/failure less important than making an effort
- - Use of teams, points and timed competition consciouslyminimized
- To develop an increased level of agility and physical coordination
- To develop an increased joy in ones physical self and in being with

- 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.
Support Coordination Wellbeing Confidence
- It is a game for 10-30 students
- 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.
4. TEKS Involved:

- patterns and proficiency in a few specialized movement forms. The student is expected to:

- locomotor and body control skills such as running and jumping safely in dynamic situations;
- (C) demonstrate mature form in jogging, running, and leaping;
- (D) demonstrate moving in and out of a balanced position with control;
- (E) demonstrate proper body alignment in lifting, carrying, pushing, and pulling;

- development of motor skills. The student is expected to:
- (B) know that practice, attention and effort are required to improve skills.

5. Step #1 Get the group of children to split up into teams of two and lock arms. 6. Step #2 Pick the team that will be it or the blob. 7. Step #3 All teams start running/fast walking to avoid being caught by the blob. 8. Step #4 Only players on the ends of the blob can tag the other teams. 9. Step #5 When teams are tagged they are added to the ends of the blob. 10. Step #6 If a group comes apart then they are caught and added into the blob. 11. Step #7 If the blob breaks they must forfeit a tag. 12. Step #8 If a team crosses a boundary then they are automatically caught by the blob. 13. Step #9 The activity goes on until there is only one team left out of the blob. They are the winners. 14. Possible Variations:
- add a foam sword to the end of the blob so when tagged they get a little bop
- allow the blob to pivot in order to tag to make the activity a little more tricky
- allow the blob to split in half after it has a certain amount to make the activity a little more complicated
