Practice selecting healthy foods and maintaining a balanced diet while staying active with this food group game. This custom activity pack features flags and coated-foam balls with printed food graphics from all 5 food groups, as well as junk food items.
Stay Active to Stay Healthy
The main FoodGroup FlagTag game features 2 teams in a race to capture balls from the other team. One is the vegetable team trying to capture veggie dodgeballs, and the other is the fruit team trying to capture the fruit balls. Eight students are designated “junk food” taggers, pulling flags and freezing players as they collect balls. Students can move again after completing a specified exercise and get tagged by 1 of the 4 “healthy helpers.” The first team to gather all its balls wins.
All games featured in the included activity instructions focus on combining activity with lessons about nutrition. Other activities involve placing flags around the gym and racing to collect and put them on their belts, performing exercises to earn a flag, or players linking arms and working as a team to gather food group balls.
