20 Question quiz to find different items on an OS map


OS map - 1:50K Leisure Map, either one as a group or an A4 print of a section which will cover all of the aspects in the Quiz.
This could be used as home work, or during a hike using the map, or as a table exercise. For an incentive i have put in points for each correct answer.


Give each Cub a map and the quiz, and allow them to work through it. Some are more tricky to get than others. (NB i have based this quiz on our local area, but it can be adapted to your own area by removing items that are not relevant and inserting those that are.)
