Hip fracture is a serious health condition that can have life-changing negative effects, especially if you’re an older adult. But research shows that people who do 120 to 300 minutes of at least moderate-intensity aerobic activity each week have a lower risk of hip fracture.

Activity Suggestion: Frostbite Tag

Objective: To get students moving and warmed up before the main activity, while replicating being frostbitten, something which could occur on Mount Everest due to the cold temperature.

Materials Needed: 3-5 pool noodles (icicle)  (depending on class size)

Activity Description:

–  Choose 3-5 taggers (could be more or less depending on class size)

–  Taggers each have a pool noodle (icicle), on the teacher’s command, the students run around the gymnasium until touched by an icicle.

–  If they are tagged, they must stay still, with their feet spread apart, they are considered “frostbitten”

–  The person tagged is “frostbitten” until another student in the class slides through their legs, unfreezing them.

–  STUDENTS CANNOT BE TAGGED WHILE UNFREEZING A CLASSMATE!
