Map Symbol Game
Patrols have to race to locate symbols on a map.
1:50,000 map & coloured markers
Place the map open on a table and have the patrols around the map. Each Patrol has a different colour marker (Plastic Milk Bottle Tops are good).
The leader calls for a symbol to be found (or uses flash cards) then the scouts find and claim the symbol on the map with their marker.
Allow 30 seconds per symbol
