Dark Walkers   Dark Walkers Activity   Scout Activity

An Indian game to build spacial awareness and direction skills.
Scouts gather at the starting point.
Leader moves out about 50-70 feet.
First scout closes his eyes.
Leader calls out to scout to start walking.
Scout walks directly towards where he believes the leader is standing.
When scout believes he has walked the distance to the leader, he stops and raises his hand.
When the scout raises his hand or when he is close to being in danger, the leader calls out to stop and the scout stops and stays where he is. He can open his eyes.

After all scouts have gone, notice where they have gone. Have the majority veered to the right or left? Have they gone past the leader or not as far?
What clues does this give us about getting lost at night when we can not see?
(We will probably tend to go to the right and not far enough.)
Did you try it and like it?             Or hate it?
