Space Rescue   Space Rescue Activity   Scout Activity

This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
two 20 foot long ropes
six 8 foot long ropes (or hula hoops)
a neckerchief, bandana, or short rope for each scout
tie each rope into a circle
The space ship in which your team was exploring the unknown reaches of far galaxies has been crippled by a meteor shower. Fortunately, a rescue ship has arrived and you need to evacuate your crew from your disabled space ship to the rescue ship. The rescue ship has tossed out a string of space steps between the ships.
Since a single astronaut will just float off into the void, the entire crew needs to link up before venturing out.

Place a large circle at one end of the play area - this is your disabled space ship.
Place a small circle about 6 inches from it.
Repeat with each small circle, creating a line of 6 small circles - the space steps.
Place the 2nd large circle at the end of the line - this is the rescue ship, come to save your crew.

Have entire team stand inside the space ship. Tie the right ankle of every scout to the left ankle of another, except for the first and last. This creates a linked line of scouts so no one gets lost in space.

The team can not step or touch outside the space steps.

See how long it takes to get rescued.
