Monthly Challenge: Build your own Bingo
Your fitness and health are personal to YOU - we all have different things we would like to work on and so this month's challenge allows you to do just that! With Build your own Bingo, you simply identify what you would like to work on, complete the bingo board, and work your way through each square.
This is perfect for any grade level or any unit you may be teaching. Check out this Badminton Bingo challenge for an example of a unit themed bingo card. I have added some ideas to help if you/ your students are stuck for ideas. Post it where someone can see it and have them keep you accountable for November. I would love to hear what ideas you come up with! For this challenge and more visit: http://fitnesschallenges.wikispaces.com/.

Low Tech vs High Tech
This activity involves foam dice and 4 different categories of exercises: cardio, dynamic flexibility, lower body muscular strength/ endurance, upper body muscular strength/ endurance. Students roll two die and total them up. They then choose an activity from one of the categories and complete the number of reps = die total. I normally have my students complete at least on activity from each sheet. You can access the activity sheets here.
2. Spin It
This app ($1.99) allows you to create your own lists of activities/ reps and on the press of the spin button it randomly chooses an activity and how many reps you are going to do. It comes with one list already pre-loaded and it is simple to create your own. Great for circuits, stations, warm ups or anything! Check out the video below to learn more.
