Everest 3.0: T.A.’s Backpack


Quote of the Day:

“I’m climbing Mount Everest… because I can… because to be able to climb that high and see that kind of beauty that nobody ever sees, it’d be a crime not to” – Doug Hansen

Did You Know?

First woman to summit mount Everest was Junko Tebei on May 16th, 1975

Activity Suggestion:

T.A.’s Backpack

Objective: The goal of this activity is to get the class talking about packing backpacks while exercising memory. Encourage students to remember terms they have learned in previous lessons.


  1. Arrange the class to sit in a circle. For this activity we will use the catchphrase: “To Everest I will bring…”

The first person will finish the phrase by chossing an item that starts with the same letter as their name.

E.g. T.A. could say “To Everest I will bring a tent”.

  1. The next person will repeat back “You are bringing _________, and to Everest I will bring_________”.
  2. This will continue around the circle until everyone has thought of something to bring.
  3. For added challenge, ask participants to recall everyone’s items.

E.g. We have packed ____________, ____________, ___________, and _________, and to Everest I will bring ____________”.
