You could always do a one chord song and simply re-tune the guitar so they simply play open strings. It’s no fun to watch your para do all the work and have all the fun. For a G chord, simply tune 1-6: D, B same, G same, D same, B, D. If you do a two chord song, say G and D chords, the student could play all the G chords with open tuning and then show them a stop sign while the other students play the D chords.
Also, use an ukelel. Or remove on a guitar the bottom two strings.
