Rowing regatta on the bus
|Recommended age:||all ages|
|Size of group:||it doesn't matter|
|Time for preparation:||none|
In order to make sure that the bus or train journey does not become too boring, a few tasks to complete might provide some variety. There are several ways to run these games. Using a list, every group member/team tries to discover the items and point them out as soon as possible. One point is awarded for this. The other version is that each group tries to capture the listed items with a digital camera. At the end, the photos are judged to find out which has achieved the most pictures. Some examples:
Danger: soft verge sign, car model, motorway services, bench, farm, road works, bridge with 3 arches, brook, book store, bus, one-way street, shopping cart, railway crossing, boats, bicycle rider, fire engine, airport, airport sign, cemetery, speed limit signs with 50, 80, 100, 120, overhead electricity cables, hotel, dog, cat, pram, church, distance sign, hospital, ambulance, cow, lorry with container, lorry with tipper, lorry, lighthouse, motorbike rider, museum, name of a bank, palm, no parking sign, horse, police car, policeman, post office, price board at the filling station, town hall, wild animals sign, dead end, sharp left bend, sharp right bend, school, lake, serpentine, silo, playing area, statue, street cleaner (vehicle), street sign – narrowing of the street, filling station, taxi, taxi queue, telephone box, tractor, diversion, Underground, traffic radio sign, dirty street, caution: wet sign, Caution: ice sign, windmill, zebra crossing, etc.
