For those of you adventure educators who get to teach health-related fitness using adventure activities (like those found in the great PA resource Achieving Fitness), head over to the FUNdoing Resources page for the latest addition.
I created the Health & Fitness Findings Bingo activity for a class I'm currently teaching and I thought some of you might be able to use it. The bingo sheet is a collection of health-related fitness items. Participants circulate around the room collecting signatures from people who have a relationship with the item. Some of the items include: I can balance on one foot for over a minute; I can do at least 10 push-ups in a row; I eat at least one piece of fruit a day. If I can find someone who eats fruit every day, I have that person sign the square. If I can get five different signatures in a row I can call out "BINGO!" And then, I get to keep on playing for more bingos. Health & Fitness Findings Bingo is a variation of the Human Bingo activity found in (another great resource from Project Adventure) Adventures in Peacemaking: A Conflict Resolution Activity Guide.
Find the PDF instructions and Bingo Sheet over in the FUNdoing Resources section.
