Pens and Paper


This activity will allow the Guides to make a poster about themselves
which will help Leaders get to know their Guides a little bit better

Explore what it would be like to be in a very crowded classroom
• Squeeze as many people as possible on to a bench or into a small square area on the floor.
• Ask everyone to write down their names and provide only one piece of paper and two pens for the exercise.
• Then divide the group in two, give one group one piece of paper and one pen that they must share all to write their name.
• Give the other group individual slips of paper and a pen each—who is finished first?
• Give half the Unit something to memorise, perhaps a poem or a set of objects, while the other half makes as much noise as possible. How distracting was it?
• Swap the groups around and try again.
• Discuss and compare these situations with conditions in their own school
