wizard's walk: Ones separate around the twos. Ones split the next twos. Back up around the twos, split the original twos. Ones end where they started WW. ⁋

Teaching Notes: 1s separate and go down outside 2s, meet and continue down to split next 2s; 1s now separate and back up outside those 2s, meet and back through previous 2s ready to form the circle to start the dance again the 2s should oscillate in and out to make room for the 1s
