# 4 Is Cosmic Activity

This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.

Instructions:

No matter what number a scout says, this pattern will always end at the number 4. The game is to figure out the pattern - and then you are part of the "In The Know" crowd.

Here are some examples of the pattern:

- 7 is 5, 5 is 4, and 4 is cosmic
- 15 is 7, 5 is 4, and 4 is cosmic
- 21 is 9, 9 is 4, and 4 is cosmic
- 10 is 3, 3 is 5, 5 is 4, and 4 is cosmic
- 101 is 13, 13 is 8, 8 is 5, 5 is 4, and 4 is cosmic

This is a great mind challenge for those scouts that have never done it. Similar to Nine Magazines activity, everyone participating in the activity should be helped along to the solution if needed. Leaving one or two scouts not knowing the pattern at the end should be avoided.

A hint is to tell players to write down what you say, when you say "7 is 5, 5 is 4, 4 is cosmic".

If they write down numerals, tell them they need to do it without using any numerals. That is usually enough.
