Motivation II Activity

Motivation II Activity

Building on the Motivation I activity, participants expand their imagination skills beyond the chair.  Participants work in pairs to decide on motivations for simple physical actions.  We provide ideas for these actions or you can invent your own to match the objectives of the class. This activity is the second activity in a Motivation series that successively builds skills. No props are needed.
