Reaching Higher   Reaching Higher Minute   Scout Minute

This Minute is meant for Boy Scouts.
Required:
sheet of butcher paper
marker
tape
Script:
Tape a sheet of butcher paper on the wall, with the top at least 9 feet high.

Ask a few different scouts to reach as high as they can on the sheet, without jumping, and make a mark with the marker.

Mention that we can usually do better than our first effort. These scouts all did their best effort, but let's see if they can do any better.

Ask each scout to come back up and see if they can't reach just a bit higher. (they will do a touch better.)

So, what does this show?
  1. Do our best at every opportunity because we might not get that second chance.
  2. Practice skills to improve.
  3. Which scout "won"? Every scout that improved won - scouting is not a competition between people, but a competition to improve your own best efforts.
Did you try it and like it?             Or hate it?
