I love the image of a seasaw, especially for dancers. I use this image to teach cause and effect. When one thing happens, it causes something else to happen. I put them in partners and we create an entire dance about when one person goes down the other goes up. We do it close together, far apart, backwards, it's so fun! It's also a quick, fun, warm-up, if you are looking for something new to incorporate!

Do you teach cause and effect to your students? What images do you use?

p.s. Don't forget to share your lesson plans to be featured next week!
