Quote of the Day:

“The mountain is not in your way, it is your way” – Unknown

Did You Know? 

There are no plants above 5,750 meters on Mount Everest.

Activity Suggestion:

Whiteout, Wind Storm, Avalanche!!

There are many risks to watch out for while climbing Mount Everest.  Some include:

  1. Avalanches
  2. Wind storms
  3. Falling rocks
  4. Frostbite
  5. Whiteout conditions
  6. Dehydration
  7. Exhaustion
  8. Illness

Equipment:

  • None required.

Instructions: Have the students stand at one end of the gymnasium or large area (i.e. field) Choose one student to be ‘it’. Have the rest of the students choose between, whiteout, wind storm, and Avalanche. The student who is ‘it’ will shout out one of these risks and the students who had chosen that same risk will run to the other side trying not to be tagged by the student who is ‘it’. The students who get tagged have to freeze in the place they were tagged. The student who is ‘it’ will then call out another risk. The game continues until all students are tagged.
