I received a Bingo game idea from a nutrition specialist. As way to incorporate exercise into this game, the bingo spaces have various activities, such as 5 jumping jacks, touch your elbow to your knee, jump in place 15 times, etc. When that activity is called, students must follow the directions given. 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 can draw the activity out of a hat, or their choice. The student who gets a Bingo becomes the next caller. This activity does not require the teacher to interact during the game.
