-Mise en place:

  • Players are in a scattered position in the playing area.

  • Four ice-makers hold a pool noodle.

  • Two other players hold a ball.


  • On the signal to begin the ice-makers tag other players. When players are tagged, they hold one hand up pointing to the sky--they are icicles.

  • Players holding the ball cannot move but can throw the "thawing" balls to icicles to thaw them out.

  • If a player holding a ball gets tagged that ball is out of play.

  • When both players holding the ball are tagged the Ice Age has happened and the game ends.

  • Play again :)

-Questions et notes:

  • Questions for Understanding:

    • How can taggers increase their success in tagging everyone--especially the ball carriers?

    • What strategies can the non-ice-makers use to decrease the ice age from happening?

  • Variation: Use different locomotor options (Gallop, jump, skip, heel-toe...)
