Before your students arrive, rip 3-4 inch pieces of colored tape (1 color per team... We usually play with two teams). Fold over about a half inch at one or both ends of the tape.
When ready to play, line each student up shoulder to shoulder and have them close there eyes. Place two of the same colored tape on each players back, around each shoulder blade, to signify which team they are on. It is best to leave the folded over tab or tab's facing up and down to keep them seprate. Evenly divide the tape so that there are two equal teams. Do not tell each student which team they are on.
The goal of the game is to run around and rip of the tape of the opposite color of your own. Once both pieces of your tape have been ripped off, you must sit down because you are OUT. Whichever team still has tape on in the end, wins.
Hint: The fun in this game is that you, as a player, do not know which team you are on... You can rip off one of your own pieces of tape to see but then you only have one left. OR you could trust someone else to tell you that you have the right color... Question is... Are you willing to turn your back to anyone?
Another hint: Make sure that each player is wearing a t-shirt, not a tank top.
-Putting your back against a wall
-Pulling your shirt around to see what color tape you are
-lying down on your back
