Telephone and Bullhorn   Telephone and Bullhorn Activity   Scout Activity

Required:
short rope for each team
Define a play area at least 20 feet across or use a large room if inside.

Create groups of 6-15 scouts. Teams should have the same number members and keep patrols together if possible.

Have each team split in half with half the scouts going to each side of the play area. Team members should be spread out on each side. If you have 4 teams for example, they should be lined up on a side as 1-2-3-4-1-2-3-4... The idea being that members of the same team are far apart.

Telephone
The leader of each team comes to the game leader and receives the directions of the game. The game leader either prints on paper or says the directions so only the team leaders can hear. Tell them not to begin until you say 'GO':



Say 'Ready-Set-GO' and see how well the directions are followed and who finishes. Time how long it takes.



Bullhorn
Using the same teams, have the team members get back in their starting positions. Then, give these directions to the team leaders:



Say 'Ready-Set-GO' and see how well the directions are followed and who finishes. Time how long it takes.



Some things to discus:

You could certainly make the tasks as complicated or simple as you want. Using different tasks and different leaders, this can be done every day if it's popular with a group.
Did you try it and like it?             Or hate it?
