Arrange all the children except one on chairs or a bench. This one is
the leader and she stands on the floor in front of the children.
Beginning at one end of the row, she pulls each child from the bench,
letting her remain in whatever position she falls. Sometimes she can
tell them how to pose, for instance, she will say "Like an angel," and
that child will fold her hands and look upward. Another might be
"cross school-teacher," and this child may pretend to be scolding
someone. Each child remains perfectly still, posed in the attitude
suggested, until all the children are on the floor. Then the leader
selects the one she thinks has posed the best and that one takes the
leader's place and the game goes on as before.
