Fun Fact of the Day

Today’s Activity

Sherpa Says:

Purpose: To get the students active and used to listening to commands.

Activity Description: Students are to scatter around the general area but close enough that they can hear the directions from the “Sherpa”. When “Sherpa Says” a command the students must do the action. For example “Sherpa Says: Run around the general space”. However to test the attention of your students you may frame a question without the “Sherpa Says” framing to see who does the action. The object of the game is only move when the Sherpa says the command.

Framing of the game could be build around the following guideline. On Mount Everest listening to your Sherpa is very important. Your Sherpa is there to protect you and keep you safe. When I say Sherpa Says you should do the command, when I do not say Sherpa Says you should not, as you should only listen to your Sherpa who is the person who is interested is your safety.
