Mime Promise & Law

Mime different lines from the Scout Law and Promise


Instructions and promise sheets attached


Split the Section into small groups
- Give each group one or more lines of the Scout Law and Promise
- The groups have nine minutes to work out a mime that will show the meaning of that
part of the law and promise
- At the end of the preparation time (which may be longer than the 9 minutes stated)
make a small performance area and each group performs their mime to the others,
who have to decide which line is being enacted
- Hand out the lines a random fashion, so that the mimes do not follow in a logical
order (you may like to play the promise & law in order at the end once the Scouts have
had the chance to guess)
