Haunted House


Haunted House

State Standard: 1, 3, & 4

Equipment: Several Beanbags, Buckets, Cones, and pool noodles (tag sticks) Grade: K-5
Purpose of Event: Work on Listening skills, directions, strategy, lots of movement
Time: 20-25 minutes
Big circle of cones around the gym – the haunted house walls. Place all your bean bags in the middle of the circle – candy. Put Hula hoops by the walls of the gym – candy buckets2 people at each station. Pick four students to be  taggers in the middle of the haunted house (ghosts). Taggers can’t leave house area. The other students are trying to steal the candy from the haunted house. Description:
Try to enter the haunted house  and steal 1 piece of candy without being tagged by a ghosts. If a student gets tagged, they put candy back and go back and tag their partner.  (For 3-5 classes I have them perform an exercise before they attempt to steal again). For K-1 students, they go back to bucket and do jumping jacks or whatever at their buckets.Modifications:
You may only tag your partner, and nobody else. Once you have decided to run to the West or East, you may not change your mind.  Get back to the line as soon as you get to the base line, or are tagged.
Concerns: Being safe while tagging. Making sure students are staying in their order. For the older kids: No cheating!!!! 
This idea is from: Amy Bertrand, Sioux Falls School District., Laura Wilder Elementary School
