“Without talking, you have 5 seconds to find a partner and sit behind them, go (1,2,3,4,5)”
“If you are sitting in the back ask your partner if you can give them a massage.”
“Remember your friend is trusting you to be kind and respectful of their body so make good choices.”
Finish with an affirmation - Have the student giving the massage place their hands on their friend’s shoulders and say “You are safe” or pick another affirmation: You are….calm, kind, relaxed, a star, great, clever, brilliant.
Have the front child say thank you (Kia Ora) and have them swap places.
* It is great to have the students check in afterwards to edit.
