What can it be used with?

The Human Knot
Have everyone put their left hand in the middle, and hold hands with someone in the circle, not directly next to them.

Repeat with the right hand, and be sure to hold hands with a different person, who is not directly next to them.

Then the group must use teamwork to unravel themselves into a circle again without coming disconnected.

works well with standardized testing reading
preparation passages and with literature circles
