Trolley Shuffle Activity
2 - 8foot 2x4 boards.
14 - 4foot lengths of 3/4 inch rope
1 inch and 1.5 inch drill bits
Using the 1.5 inch bit, every foot on each board, sink a 1.5 inch hole halfway through the wide side of the board.
Using the 1 inch bit, drill each hole the rest of the way through the board.
Thread a rope through each hole, tying a knot on each end.
Good exercise for developing team cooperation.
Reflect on who gave directions, how did scouts work together, what was the success level, how we could improve.
Place the trolleys on the ground, side by side. Each scout in a patrol stands with one foot on each board and holds onto a rope on each board.
As a team, the group walks by lifting a foot and pulling that rope up at the same time.
If there are fewer than 7 on a patrol, tie up the extra ropes. If there are more than 7, some will not have ropes to hang onto.
