Fitness Fortune Teller

There are so many examples like the link below, on how to make a "Fortune Teller" or as it was called when I was younger, a "Cootie Catcher".   

See some examples at the links below for other ideas to integrate literacy or numeracy (idea from Pinterest)

Deceptively Educational Blogspot has a sample Spelling Fortune Teller and outlines how to make it.

Fitness Fortune Teller
Here is how I made mine:  I used 4 of  Ophea's 50 Fitness Activities on the outside.  I also incorporated colours, numbers, shapes and when you flip open the fortune, there is a motivational quote for the students to read.

School in HWDSB have recently received Functional Fitness Circuit Charts from Thompson Publishing (Series: Physical Literacy for Elementary Schools)

Functional Fitness Chart IDEA using the Fitness Fortune Tellers:  Label each out side section of the fitness fortune as Fit Chart 1, Fit Chart 2, Fit Chart 3, Fit Chart 4.  Include repetitions in each section. Number the four selected Functional Fitness Circuit Charts 1, 2, 3, 4 and place one in each corner of your classroom, gym or outdoor space.  Student move around the space performing their activities in small groups of 3-4 students.  Each students gets a turn to try the Fitness Fortune Teller.  When the time is up, each students selects a motivational quote to read aloud (or read a site word or try math question).
