Senior Daily Fun

Morse Code- A Fun Senior Activity

Safety Note:

Don’t hit anything in arm’s or leg’s reach.
Don’t fling anything (rings, shoes, etc.)
Do only what is appropriate and healthy for you.

This exercise for seniors is about working through the alphabet to learn Morse code. To include a physical piece, clap and stomp to designate the short or long beat.

Morse code is a well known communication system designed to send messages over long distances. A dot (a short beat) and a dash (a long beat) combine to represent all letters. Learn the code by spelling out the words listed.

Use the theme of the week to gather words to use. We have included a list but see if you can collect your own.

There are no wrong answers and cheating is allowed for Q, X and Z. Use words beginning with Ex for X and any word with a ‘Q’ in it for Q’s.

For variety, designate other options such as a clap and a stomp or a wink and a blink, or one clap and two claps.
