The jig-saw feature of this puzzle makes it interesting, especially to newly organized Troops, whose members are learning the Scout Oath.

Preparation

In advance of the Patrol meeting the Patrol Scribe writes the Scout Oath on two cards, one for each team. Then, placing the cards one on top of the other, he cuts them into small jig-saw pieces, as one might cut them on a jig-saw. To avoid confusion the cards must be of different colors or the back of one of them may be colored with crayons.

Before the contest is started the Patrol Leader either teaches or reviews his members in the exact wording of the Scout Oath, then divides his Scouts into two teams and starts the contest.

Each team leader divides the cut-up pieces among his members. When the signal is given the Scouts in each team huddle around a chair or table and try to put their pieces together to form the words of the Scout Oath. The one who finishes first wins.

Tip

Contests of this type succeed only when Patrol Leaders and Patrol Scribes are given specific instruction.
