Tag game based on learning about the heart and heart beat
Heart Tag Game
*To follow on from a discussion about the Heart and Heartbeat*
Split Beavers into two teams. One to run from one end of the hall/playground, and one from the other. These are the Blood Cells. Leader stands in the middle and is the heart. Pick two beavers to join hands. These are sticky cholesterol (bad stuff in our veins which is why we want to eat healthily).
Objective is for eachblood cell to touch the heart and run to either end of the hall without being stopped by the cholesterol. If they are touched, they become sticky and have to join hands with the cholesterol chain to catch more blood cells.
Last blood cell to be caught becomes the new heart and the game starts again!
