Have students comb their hair, with the stipulation that they cannot bend their elbows. This is quite a hilarious sight to see them trying to comb hair with straight arms.

It is possible for…

Much more difficult, if at all possible. Strength in numbers. This object lesson can also be illustrated with a bundle of sticks. Could also use Alma 48:10 : “And in their weakest fortifications he…
