Grade Level: K-5
Equipment: Pinnies (different colors)
Game Description: Fruit salad is a tag game for kindergarten to grade 5. Give out different color pinnies to the taggers and ask the students to name fruits that are the same colors of the pinnies. If students get tagged by a certain color then they freeze into the shape of the particular fruit that matches the color. As a class you can decide upon different ideas of how to freeze into a particular fruit. The class also determines how to unfreeze the different pieces of fruit so there are lots of different kinds of actions and they can make up a new version almost every time.
Examples: Apple – Cut, Banana – Peel, Blueberry – Wash, Watermelon – Roll, etc.
Try it out with the VEGETABLE theme as well! Move and learn at the same time with the Fruit Salad physical education game.
