This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts, Webelos scouts.
6 to 10 scouts. If more than 11 scouts, break into teams of 6 to 8.
Sheets of paper or markers that scouts can stand on. Need number of scouts on a team plus 1.
This is a teamwork, cooperation, thinking activity rather than a physical one.
Lay out markers in a line.
Have half the patrol stand on markers on one side while the other half stand on the other end. There should be one empty marker between the two halves of the patrol. Rules
- a scout can move forward or backward
- a scout can move only one step to an empty marker or around one scout to an empty marker.
Once the pattern is discovered, the scouts leap-frog around each other easily. Reflection
- Were you successful?
- Did someone take charge? What did they do?
- What communicating was done and was it productive?
