Tag! You’re It!
Third grade took part in an engaging game of Tag which incorporated what students learned about food chains in Life Sciences.
The kids and teachers split into groups – producers, consumers and decomposers.
The producers were not able to move until a primary consumer (the prey) tagged them. Then, they became a team trying to avoid the secondary consumers (the predators). Once the kids were tagged by a predator, they now had to work together to avoid the decomposers (the third grade teachers). Assistant Principal Mr. Krause joined the fun, participating as a predator. Mr. Krause created the largest team until they were “decomposed”.
Mrs. Hubble reports that the food chain activity was a hit by all! She thinks the students had so much fun playing the game that they forgot they were also learning!
