PRE-OPENING ACTIVITY

Transportation
National Capital Area Council

Slips of paper are marked with one of the following words: CAR, TUGBOAT, JETPLANE, TRAIN, BICYCLE BELL, or HELICOPTER. Each person is given a slip of paper as they arrive at the pack meeting. On signal, everyone hunts for the rest of his group by making the sound that corresponds to the form of transportation on his slip. No talking is allowed! Each group must continue making its sound until time is called (When most people seem to have found their group). Then, have group members introduce themselves to one another. Each group, as a group, must make its sound for the rest of the groups, who try to guess what their vehicle is.

Name That Tree
York-Adams Council

This is a wooded outdoor activity, but if you're stuck inside or away from the trees, improvise by having leaf and limb samples for folks to use. Select as many different kinds of trees as possible in the area and label each one with a number on an index card. (Tie the index card around the tree.) Give each person a sheet with the names of the different trees that you have labeled. Send the folks out into the "forest" to match the trees and the names.
