Pass The Squeeze
Work as a team to pass a squeeze from person to person around the circle.
Start in a Drama circle and ask students to hold hands.
Tell students you are going to send a squeeze around the circle, and then go on to squeeze the persons hand to your right. The squeeze should then find it's way all around the circle.
Once the students are comfortable with this, add a rhythm to the squeeze and see if it's the same rhythm that is returned.
Using a watch, time how long it takes to travel around the circle. Set an initial target for them to beat. Change direction to see which way is fastest.
Depending on circle size, a squeeze could be sent around in both directions. This makes it quite a challenge for the person who gets 2 squeezes and has to pass them both on. Also you could add in more complex rhythms.
