This lesson is a spin-off of the popular television show Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader? Students are chosen one by one to pick an exercise card that will also have a point value on it. Once a card is selected as a class, students perform that exercise for one minute to see if they can outlast their teacher. If the teacher falls first then the students get the points but if the teacher outlasts the students then he/she gets the points. This lesson concentrates mostly on the use of psychomotor skills.
