Community Meeting

Secret Squeeze

Greeting Objective

The learners will greet each other by squeezing one another’s hands.


  • Select a student ahead of time to begin this greeting. They will be the “squeezer.”
  • All students stand in a circle and cross their arms.
  • Students then grab a hold of neighbors’ hands keeping their arms crossed.
  • The “squeezer” squeezes one hand to the right or to the left.
  • That student continues to squeeze the hand of the next neighbor
  • The squeeze continues around the circle until it reaches the “squeezer” again.
  • Squeezer says, “I’m responsible for that squeeze!” (This will identify the squeezer.)
  • All students say, “Good morning, Squeezer!”
  • Students close their eyes and teacher chooses a new Squeezer.
  • Continue as time allows.
  • Conclude by having students twist out of the circle, so they are all facing outward.

That’s Easy Peezy Lemon Squeezy

Engagement Objective

The learners will act out simple ways to show responsibility toward their pets, family, or the earth.


  • Students stand in a circle. (Example for Pet Responsibility)
  • Each student takes a turn in the middle of the circle to silently act out a way they are responsible for their pet. (i.e., Students pretend they are brushing their cat or dog.)
  • Class asks student in the middle, “What is your responsibility?”
  • Student replies, “I’m responsible for brushing my cat.”
  • Class says together, “That’s Easy Peezy Lemon Squeezy!” (A quote from the movie The Greatest Game Ever Played.)
  • This continues until every student has had a turn.
  • Conclude by discussing that it is “Easy Peezy Lemon Squeezy” to know how to be responsible for a pet, but we have to make sure we follow through with our responsibilities for our pets, because they won’t remind us!
