Give a helping hand

Jack and Rick (Green Light Readers Level 1) by David McPhail (2003-07-01) - David McPhail

The story of Jack and Rick is all about helping each other. Jack and Rick worked together to get across the river. My class would work together with a friend in this game. I would partner the students up and ask the students to stand side by side with your friend/partner. I would go around and tie one of the students legs to the other student. I would then ask the class to try walking or hopping together. We would then discuss what happened. I would also talk about what they learning about working together?
