Slow Motion Tag




Ice Breaker/Teamwork

This exercise is for the whole group. It it simply the game of tag, with

the added wrinkle that the players may only move in slow motion. Instruct

the group to always move at the same speed as the players around them, and

do NOT alter the speed to avoid being tagged. Continue for 2 minutes.

APPLICATION: It may seem contradictory that the game of tag be included as

a teamwork game, but the addition of slow motion makes it just that.

Normally, the game of tag is "every man for himself," and the slow will be

"it" forever. By making moving at the same slow speed the point of focus,

and the game of tag the resistance to that focus, one creates an unwitting

atmosphere of cooperation rather than competition.
