This activity worksheet is an interactive class exercise for students who have at least a general idea of health-related fitness concepts (e.g. 12 years of age and older). Each student has a fitness topic bingo sheet and a pen. Students mingle around the room collecting signatures from other students who can say “YES” to a topic in a particular box. The game can stop when someone has five-in-a-row or when someone fills his or her entire card with at least one signature in each box (my favorite way to play).
This activity is a nice way to get students interacting and learning about each other. It’s also a nice lead in to discuss a wide variety of fitness-related topics. For example, eating habits, exercise habits, fitness levels, and fitness practices. You can also take the idea and create other signature bingo cards for different subject areas.
