Thank you for your rating!

This is a great activity for muscular strength and endourance.  Split the students up into small groups with no more than 5 students.  Each group needs a bang deck placing the deck upside down.  Students will draw the top card from the deck to colleted their own pile of cards.  The student performs the task that is listed on the card (i.e. 3 pushups, 7 frog jumps, etc.). when they have completed the activity, they draw another card.  When a student draws the “BANG” card, s/he places all her/his cards at the bottom of the deck.  At the end of the class the student with the most cards in her/his group wins.

I do this activity with my 2nd through 5th grade students. You can adapt it for 7th and 8th by making it more like a circuit training session, so they can learn that they don't need weights to strengthen their muscles.

Great idea - do you do this with 7th and 8th graders? It seems as if my students in 7th and 8th grade like to only play team sports. I am looking for some variations on large group games (other than Capture the flag, volleyball, basketball, etc.), if you have any ideas. I like your other video ideas also. V.
