Instructions:

1. Put the children into groups of three and have two of the children hold
hands around the third child. These two children represent the trees. The
third child in the group is the squirrel.
2. When you say, “Change trees,” the “trees” lift their hands, still holding
each other, so that the “squirrels” can run to other trees.
3. Repeat five times.
4. Change the positions so that each squirrel has become a tree and one
tree has become the squirrel.
5. Change again so that every child has the opportunity to be a squirrel.
