bulletGeneral Nature Review
bulletLeader Provides Labeled Specimens

The principle of this Scout Way may be applied to other Scout Requirements. It is described here for use as a nature review.

 

Preparation

Form the Troop by Patrols in a large circle. Each Patrol Leader assigns numbers (from 1 to 10) to his members. The game leader takes his place in the center of the circle with a bag containing nature specimens.

 

The Game

The leader pulls from his bag a specimen, holds it over his head and keeps turning so that all can see it, and then asks a question about it and suddenly calls a number. The first Scout with that number who runs and touches the leader and names the specimen or answers the question scores one point for his Patrol.

 

Tips

Make this game more than merely identification. For example, hold up a piece of wood, and having in mind fire by rubbing sticks, say, "Name it and tell what you can make with its wood.

Write the numbers in jumbled order on your bag and call them in that order, so that every player's number will be called at least once.

Prepare cards bearing names and questions to attach to specimens. Interrupt the game occasionally to tell interesting facts noted on the cards.
