Oxygen Tank Fill Game
This Game is meant for Cub Scouts.
- 1 bucket of water
- 1 plastic milk jug
- paper cup for each scout
After game, discuss how scouts worked together. Did they all rush to the bucket or take turns or form a line? Which ways worked best?
Each team is a crew of astronauts that have landed on a mysterious planet inhabited by terrible monsters. They are running low on oxygen and will never be able to make it back to Earth, but luckily have found a source of liquid oxygen (the bucket). They must refill their oxygen tank on their spaceship (the jar) quickly using their oxygen transporters (cups) and leave before the space monsters find them.
Group each patrol at a starting line where their empty jug is sitting.
Give each scout an oxygen transporter (paper cup).
Place the liquid oxygen (bucket) out about 30 feet.
The only rule is that the jar and bucket can not be moved and the water can only be carried in the cups.
See which team can fill their oxygen tank first.
