This file contains an activity called swimming tag. It’s a great warm-up, cool-down, or even lesson focus activity that gets the students up and moving using the basic swim skills without the use of a pool. The lesson includes the equipment needed, national standards, setup, and diagram of the activity. This activity doesn’t use a pool or water, but is done in the gymnasium. It could be modified to be used in a pool, but that’s not it’s intended purpose. The activity is great because it’s very simple to explain and can be done at any level. Swimming tag does not give specific details about swimming techniques, but is more for getting the students moving while possibly introducing some basic swimming strokes that the teacher may know. Modify the activity to your own specific needs and you’ll see the kids love the activity. Enjoy!
