(CSMP 2004, Sept. suggestion # 1)
Ask a child to try, with the supervision of a leader, to lift a chair holding just one of the legs.
Ask a second child to hold a leg of the chair and, with
the first child, try to lift the chair.
Ask two more children, each holding a leg of the chair, to lift the chair with the other two.
Ask, "What does this teach about every family member helping?"
Taking turns, have several children demonstrate or draw a chalkboard picture of work they can do in their families.
Have the other children guess what is being demonstrated or drawn.
