Hidden Route   Hidden Route Activity   Scout Activity

This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
Required:
16 stepping stones, carpet squares, sheets of paper, or paper plates.
two-sided tape
bell or whistle
Preparation:
lay the 16 items in a 4x4 grid and tape them to the floor if inside
Goal: team crosses the grid following the hidden path through the stepping stones. This may take from 10 to 40 minutes. Teams try to accumulate the fewest points while solving the problem.

Instructions:

The problem is solved when all team members have crossed the grid following the hidden route.


Reflection:


Alternate Activity: Split the group in half and have each half working at the same time to find the route, one going 1-16 and the other going 16-1. Don't say they are working together, but don't say they are competing either.
If they figure out they can cooperate, it should take half the time.

Some example layouts:

09 01 07 06 03 04 07 06
10 08 02 05 01 02 05 08
12 11 03 04 11 13 09 16
13 14 15 16 12 10 14 15
