  • Make one copy of the Handout for each student.

Students stand up and get a partner. The students' task is to choose an activity from the Handout and ask their partner if they can do the activity. If their partner can do the activity and can demonstrate it, then they write the name of their partner on the square.

For example:

A: Can you stand on one foot for 20 seconds?

B: Yes, I can.

A: Show me!

B: (B demonstrates the activity)


Continue until the students find someone in the class who can do each activity on the handout.
