Three Finger Tag-First explain and demonstrate as follows: All students start in a self space with three fingers (points) which they hold up. Select one or two students to be taggers; these students wear pinnies. When the "go" signal is given, students attempt to keep from being tagged by the taggers while they are moving about the gym. If they fall down, they lose a point (finger). If they bump into someone, they lose a point (finger). If they get tagged, they lose a point (finger). If they lose all three points (fingers) within the game, they become helper trees. Helper trees are frozen on the spot, but can still move their arms (branches) to try to help the taggers.
