I’ve had great success with this modified version of Bingo that incorporates exercise into the game. Spaces on the bingo card have various activities, such as 5 jumping jacks, touch your elbow to your knee, jump in place 15 times, etc. I use blank bingo cards and have the students choose out of a list which activities they want to include and where on their card those activities would go. The caller may draw the activity out of a hat or make his/her own choice. When that activity is called, students must follow the directions given. The student who gets a Bingo becomes the next caller. This activity does not require the teacher to interact during the game.
