Students create colourful caterpillars, making them as long as they want, and then clap the rhythms they've made.
Clap them forwards, clap them backwards, change the order around - have fun!
The teacher creates a selection of caterpillars with different rhythms, then chooses one to clap and have the student work out which caterpillar they clapped.
This could also be used in a group setting where one student picks a caterpillar to clap and the other students work out which caterpillar was chosen.
