Health Class Tips: Muscle Charades
Here's a fun way to drill your students' knowledge of muscle groups and their functions.
How to Play
Divide your class into groups and secretly assign each group one or more muscles.
For example, you might assign:
Group 1: Quadriceps
Each group pantomimes the function of their muscle group to the rest of the class (e.g. cracking a nut on the biceps). The class must guess which muscle is being indicated.
Group 2: Biceps
Group 3: Pectorals
Group 4: Gluteus maximus
Group 5: Obliques etc.
