Fun Fact of the Day


Everest in the Nepali language is Sagarmatha which means goddess of the sky and it stands at a staggering 8,848 metres (29,029 ft) above sea level.

Today’s Activity: Puzzle Relay (Images)

Materials Needed: Cut outs of images relating to Mountaineering, or Mount Everest, i.e coils of rope, ice pick, flags, helmets, different mountains, etc.

– Each group will have an image which they will have to piece together (the group will not know what their image is before hand)

–  In groups of 4-5, have students lined up (single file behind their pylons)

–  Each group will have a set of puzzle pieces located directly across from them

–  On go, the first person in line will run towards their pieces, and bring back ONE piece.

–  The next person in line will do the same, until each piece has been returned to the group

–  Once all the pieces have been brought back the group can begin trying to put together the puzzle of their image

–  The game does not end until each image has been completed (encourage students to help other groups to finish their puzzles!!!)
