Team race giving Beaver/Squirrels an introduction to the history of Scouting.

Alternative version of story from scouts.org.uk added.




Get Beavers/Squirrels to line up in their Lodges/Dreys at one end of the hall, 1 YP behind the other and sit down.
Name them from the front - Baden-Powell, Scout, Africa, Nineteen, Boy/Girl, Seven (depending how many are in each team).
Read out the story, YPs should jump up & race to the end of the hall and back when they hear their "name" in the story. Winner is the first one to come back & sit nicely in their place in the line.
