Scout State Rally 2019
Harbord scouts in action at the Lego Masters challenge improving their verbal communication skills.
The challenge The patrol leader sat on one side of a fence with a tray of lego and their patrol sat on the other side with an identical tray of lego. The patrol leader talks through the fence describing each piece as they make a structure. The patrol confirms the instructions and creates the same structure. After 10 to 15 minutes everyone stands up to compare the structures. Sometimes they are exactly the same, sometimes not. This activity really challenges the communication skills and ability to work as a team.
