Compass Reading Game
This Game is meant for Boy Scouts.
compass, paper, and pencil for each scout
8-10 stakes in the ground with arrow markers stapled to top.
Place the stakes out in the play area so that each arrow points at a distant object.
Write a number on the stake or marker on top - 1 through 10.
Each scout should write the numbers 1-10 on his paper, with 3 lines empty between numbers.
Good for newer scouts to build compass experience.
Set a time limit of 6-8 minutes.
On go signal, scouts go to any stake they want. At each stake, write down what object they believe the arrow is pointing at by the corresponding number on their paper. Then, figure the bearing from the stake to that object and write it down. (Or, just find the bearing of the arrow on the marker)
When all stakes have been done or when time is called, each scout turns his paper into the judge.
