Classroom Planking

I walked into my advisory one day to find these things occurring:

The day before, one of my students had mentioned planking and another asked what the word meant.  We really have no curriculum or structure for advisory, so I decided we should learn about planking that day.  I pulled up the YouTube video from the Australian news station and we discussed how the plank position is actually a yoga position as well.  Then we went back to our scheduled activity (I think we were talking about integrity).

Then the next day this happened.  I laughed so hard when I saw my students planking on my desks!  I immediately took pictures.  My 8th grade boys are pretty funny.
