Balance unicycle monkey on string

Tie a string to some location on the side of the class about shoulder or waist high. Have someone hold the other end of the string until you have the monkey located in the center and assembled. Thread the string through the monkey's wheel. Then you can raise or lower your free end of the string to move the monkey back and forth on the string, balancing as it goes.
