Robot Tag

This Robot Tag activity & project also includes:

Assign a few players to be "bad robots," and the rest of the class is "good robots." Place three Hula hoops in the middle of the gym to represent the 10-second "charging station," or safe area. Set up a cone square on one end of the gym. This is the 30-second "repair shop," or out area. Give the bad robots a few dodgeballs. If the good robots get tagged by the bad robots, then they must go to the repair shop for 30 seconds. Players can use the charging station as a 10-second safe area. Play continuously.
