Making Change Relay Game
For each patrol: 4 pennies, 1 nickel, 2 dimes, 1 quarter, 2 small boxes or chairs or squares of paper
For each patrol, place a box at one end of the play area - this is the patrol's Bank. At the other end of the area, a second box is the Store. A couple judges are needed by the Stores - they are the store clerks.
The idea is to take the required coins from the Bank to make exact change at the Store.
Patrols line up in the center of the area, halfway between their Bank and Store.
One scout from each patrol gets ready to race.
The leader calls our a price from 1 cent to 53 cents. This is the amount that the Store clerk requires. The scout moves coins from the Bank box to the Store box so there is that exact amount at the Store. He then returns to his patrol.
First scout home with the correct amount at the Store gains a point for his patrol.
