Birds of a Feather Game
Slips of paper with a bird name written on each one - chicken, turkey, goose, duck, chickadee, crow. If you have 24 people, make 4 of each. If 42, make 7 of each.
Hand out a paper slip to each scout.
Since the groups constantly change, there is no real team that wins. It should only take about three minutes to get a winner so many rounds can be played.
If you are going to give out any small prizes, do it right after the round since you'll have no idea who gets the prize later.
On 'GO' signal, scouts mill about the room exchanging slips as many times as they can with as many different scouts as possible. They do not look at what is written on the paper.
On 'STOP' signal, scouts stop and look at their paper.
On 'FIND YOUR FLOCK' signal, scouts try to find all others of their kind and then sit down together. The last group to sit is out, taking their papers with them.
Repeat until only one flock is left.
Alternate: When finding your flock, you can only make the noise of the bird you have, no talking.
Alternate: Use any animals rather than just these birds.
