My third grade informant from McKinley Elementary described a game commonly played on the playground.

“Well freeze tag…it’s a game…it’s like tag but the tagger gets to freeze someone [the person who the tagger touches must stop moving] once their frozen someone else…who’s not frozen can unfreeze them and everyone has to run.”

This style of tag has survived many generations I can recall playing this myself in grade school. It serves as both exercise and amusement during recess and lunch.
