Split patrols down in to small groups no larger than 4 people. Each gorup is given the morse code activity booklet, and some crib cards. In there groups learning by practical message sending between each other.

As time goes on try to get the groups to turn over there crib sheet and write some messages, pass the messages around and see how much they can get correct.

Now in there groups, using pen and paper write morse code messages to other groups and have the groups decode the messages, when each group is confident in sending and receiving paper messages. Give each group a message to send, give them a few minutes to write them down and in a field, using the torch or morse code oscillator send practical messages to another group, and have the other group decode the message.
