Instructions

Divide the class into small groups of 5-6 students. Each group of students then form a small circle with shoulders almost touching. Each student then puts out their left hand and takes hold of someone’s hand. They then put out their right hand and grab a different persons right hand. The group then work to untangle the knot by exchanging places, following arms, swapping sides or going over/under arms. At no time during the untangling can you let go of a hand
