Activity Ideas for Home or Classroom

Science
Analyze the physics of this pose. What would happen if either partner let go of the other’s hands? Why does this pose work best with partners of approximately equal weight?

Art
Discuss the concept of symmetry in this pose and in works of art. Then ask your students to create symmetrical art of their own.
