Great Big Walk Day 27: Rest Day in Chyamtang (2187m)

Rest Day in Chyamtang (2187m)

Quote for the Day

The best way undoubtedly of seeing a country is on foot. It is the safest, and most suited to every variety of road; it will often enable you to take a shorter track, and visit scenes (the finest perhaps) not otherwise accessible; it is healthy, and, with a little practice, easy; it is economical.
Robin Jarvis

If you are walking outside, it helps boost your Vitamin D levels and Vitamin D is a nutrient that can’t always be easily obtained from food.

Activity Suggestion: Climbing Tag

Materials Needed: Hula Hoops and Pinnies

Activity Description: Set up in a wide open space such as a gymnasium and place hula hoops in various areas around the gym.  The teacher will pick three students to be taggers while the others are mountain climbers trying to avoid being tagged.  The students will line up on the baseline of the basketball court and are trying to make it from one end of the gymnasium or “mountain” to the other.  There will be hula hoops around the area which symbolize camps on a mountain.  Students can use these camps for up to five seconds if they are in danger of being tagged, as you cannot be tagged while you are inside of one.  After five seconds, the student must continue running to the other end of the gymnasium.  If tagged, they join the taggers to try and catch the rest of their class.
