Explorer Scavenger Hunt

On Friday for class we had a scavenger hunt around campus. We had different tasks to complete and get our picture taken at each site we went to. We had to sing twinkle twinkle little star to some faculty members which was both fun and funny. Other tasks included running and finding things around campus to get our group picture with. I think this activity was a lot of fun. It required psychomotor, cognitive, and affective skills to complete the challenges, which makes it a suitable physical education lesson. As a future physical educator I would defiantly incorporate something like this for my class to participate in. The scavenger hunt made us think, work together and be physically active all at the same time, which is exactly what we want our students doing. This lesson kept everyone active and using the heart rate monitors allowed us to see our heart rates throughout the lesson and after the lesson. Above is my heart rate information from the lesson.
