Running Buddy Topic Cards!

Getting-to-know-you topic/sentence starters WHILE JOGGING!

Here's an idea to get your students thinking about how hard they are working using the talk test.  Junior/Intermediate students can monitor their intensity by using the "Talk Test" and moving around a designated space using a Running Buddy Topic card to help generate a conversation.

Cards as motivators!
-  Partner Task: Partners motivate, encourage their partner as they jog
- Task becomes an interpersonal activity where they can socialize with a friend and get to know someones thoughts and ideas in response to an interesting prompt on their Running Buddy Topic Card
- Makes jogging a little more exciting!
