Counter balances are a great way to develop both partner and team work.
A counter balance is a balance where both you and your partner are doing an equal amount of work to hold each other up. If either of you let go, then you both go splat.
Grades 1 and 2
Basic copying the pictures is suitable.
Grades 3 and 4
Ask the students to extend the pictures into groups of 3 or 4 (instead of partners).
Note:- For it to still be a counter balance, all studetns must do equal work. That means that the picture becomes circular, not a line.
Grades 5 and 6
