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.

Instructions:

  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 ____________”.
