Secret Agent Tag

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet
This Secret Agent Tag activity also includes:

Have the whole class sit down on the floor with their eyes closed. Pick a few people to be the "bad guys," which are the taggers, and a few people to be the "secret agents," which are the freers, by tapping them once or twice on the head. Everyone else that didn't get tapped is a "citizen." If a citizen gets tagged by a bad guy, he must sit down. A secret agent can free the citizen by tapping them on the shoulder. But, the catch is that secret agents can also be tagged by the bad guys. Play until all secret agents are out.
