Odd Even Tag

Heading 1

-Objective:

Heading 1

To answer a math problem quickly and not get tagged if it is your number, and do tag if it is your opponent's number.

-Fundamental Movement Skills:

-Equipment List:

  • One dice per player

-Equipment Link:

-Setting Up:

  • Players pair up.

  • Each sits facing and beside their partner.

  • Each player holds a dice.

  • Players determine who is the odd player and who is the even player.

-Instructions:

  • When players are ready each throws their dice.

  • Players add the total of the dice numbers.

  • If the sum is odd then the odd players try to move their ankles to prevent them from being tagged by their opponent.

  • If the sum is even then the even players try to move their ankles to prevent them from being tagged by their opponent.

  • If players are tagged they stand up and sit back down (or do a different exercise).

  • If players miss a tag they stand up and sit back down (or do a different exercise).

-Questions & Notes:

  • Variations:

    • Could also do this game with subtraction.

    • Could also do this game with multiplication, except 75% of the time it will be even--perhaps ask players why this is.
