Create a word search puzzle that’s age-specific for your student(s.)

On one wall, post the list of words to be found. On the opposite wall, post the puzzle without the list of words attached.

Students may attempt to recall up to three words at a time.

Students start at the word list, and memorize the first three words. Then they proceed through a vestibular challenge:

3 somersaults

20 jumping jacks

3 backward rolls

20 squats

…and run to the puzzle, trying to recall (and then find) their three words.

After finding their three words, they return to the word list. If they can’t recall a word, they must return to the word list and retrieve three new words, one of which will be the forgotten word. Each time they visit the word list, they proceed through the vestibular challenge before returning to the puzzle, even if there’s only one word left to find.

For time.

Today’s challenge focuses on working memory, number manipulation, and integer math.

Practice: Handstands

Then (no calculator):

1. -1872 ÷ -26 =
2. -7200 ÷ 90 =
3. -1936 ÷ -88 =
4. 2755 ÷ -95 =
5. 1440 ÷ 90 =
6. -5369 ÷ -59 =
7. -2585 ÷ 47 =
8. -630 ÷ 7 =
9. -238 ÷ -34 =
10. 0 ÷ 8 =

Physical Challenge:

Do as many rounds as possible in 12 minutes:
150 M sprint
2 Rope Climbs (15′)
6 Monkey Hangs
12 Kettlebell Swings (10-15#)

If you don’t have a rope or any other equipment, substitute an exercise of your choice.

Do the physical part first; don’t read the problem until you’ve finished.

25 sit ups
20 Toes to bar
15 Knees to elbows

Problem
By using positive integers, how many different ways can you make a sum that is
equal to six?
For example you could use:
3 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 6
4 + 2 = 6
1 + 2 + 3 = 6
(Consider 4 + 2 to be the same as 2 + 4)

Challenge

50 Box jumps, 24″
800M
50 Box Jumps, 24″

…for time.
