Running Man is a show where adults play variations on children games. The members, often with guests, are given missions/tasks to complete. It is one of the most popular variety shows in Asia and is becoming very well known in the United States.
The objective or goal of these activities is to get students moving and engaged. These lessons are based on core standards and can be used to assess student learning. Please contact me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. Thanks!

I have created lesson plans to teach History & Social Studies concepts using "Running Man" as inspiration:
Created for Utah History but can be modified for US History classes.
Students team up and complete tasks to collect pieces of a riddle, the ultimate goal is to solve the riddle.
Note: This could be converted into an Escape Classroom Activity
Created for a geography course to review the sun-earth relationship.
Teams of students set out to collect clues to solve a question to a real world situation.
Created to help students review the Greek Gods and their powers. Zeus Team vs. Hades Team each with Spartan Warriors battle to defeat the other using their powers and taking the powers of opposing players to eliminate them.
Note: This could be modified into a dodgeball or similar game.
