Quick Frozen Critters

In this activity, learners play an active version of freeze tag based on predator/prey relationships. "Prey" players must try to collect three food tokens by moving from the shelter area to the food source and back in order to survive. Meanwhile, predator players try to tag prey. This game can be played outdoors or even in the shallow end of a large swimming pool.
