This task is an exercise for children to work as a class – learning to be a ‘team’! They must also be very careful and help each other as much as possible.
Children are to stand in a circle, as close together as possible, then turn to face right – their left arm should be in the centre of the circle. Get the children to move a step in so that they are physically body to body with the children in front – it has to be so for the exercise to work!!!
On three, all children should try to sit! They will find that the person behind will support them, therefore so will the person behind them and so on – weight is evenly distributed! They will be able to almost hover!!
See if your children can work as a team! (There is no ‘I’ in TEAM!)
