Today, after assembling in school at 9.00 p.m., we started with our normal horseshoe. After the horseshoe, we lined up in our Indian file. When we had sat down, Baloo told us that today, we would be going to different classrooms on level 1 to do something…
We were put into 3 groups to go to our separate classrooms. The grouping was pretty much like a headcount, except we restarted once we reached 3.
After we got our groups, we were assigned teachers to take us to our classrooms and help us with the activity. So, went to our separate classes. Once we were in the classroom, our teacher, Mdm Kerina, took out a set of cards. What could we possibly be doing with those cards? I wondered. My question was soon answered by Mdm Kerina. “With this set of cards, you will have to pick one to explain yourself, then later, scouting.” She said.
After she explained what we were to do, we lined up in three rows and started picking card to explain ourselves. If was quite fun, learning all these new things about my friends and also other fellow scouts. After explaining about ourselves, we started explaining about scouting. Hearing other people’s different views about Scouting, I prepared my view and started explaining to the rest of the scout in the same group as me.
I thought that was the end, but there was something else! We were each given a card face down, then we flipped them and were supposed to find someone whom we thought was described on the card. So, we went around searching for people.
Finally, we were done, we back to the kidzone. Once everyone had come, we played a game called “Poisonous Frog” These are the rules…
1. A detective will be chosen, then, he will face a wall and cover his eyes.
2. A frog will be chosen, he will be the killer. To “kill”, he will stick his tongue out at a person. Once “killed”, the person will have to lie down.
3. The detective will have to find the frog before everyone dies
The game was so fun!
After finishing the last round, we assembled back in Indian file. I thought this was the end of the meeting, but then Baloo, told us that for the upcoming Fun Camp in November, we will not be singing the normal scout songs for the campfire. Instead, we would be coming up with our own songs. So, we started suggesting songs, one after another, to Baloo.
Once we were done with that, we were told to memorize them. Then, we assembled in Horseshoe formation and ended the meeting.
