   Alright folks - here's the first Pack 164 Fire Safety Game. I used it
   at my Pack meeting this Monday. It took most of 45 minutes, which was
   my goal. I used the Version 1 instructions. Things went fairly well,
   but as soon as I got home, I typed up the Version 2 instructions as
   well, and intend to use them the next time. Some of the boys were able
   to handle the 'game' by themselves, but most of the 2nd graders, and a
   few strays from the older grades, couldn't stay 'on task' for more
   than 5 or 10 minutes. If anyone else wants to try this game, all I ask
   is that: 1) you let me know that you're using it, and 2) you give me
   feedback, suggestions, improvements, etc. when you're done. I've
   attempted to re-format this text in plain ASCII, my original is on a
   MAC using WORD 4.0. If you see any typo's, they were probably
   introduced during reformatting. PS - at the (older) Boy Scout level,
   I'd suggest doing it first alone, and then by Patrol.

   FIRE SAFETY GAME
   
   INSTRUCTIONS: VERSION 1
   
   This 'game' is has been designed with Cub Scouts in mind. The game
   will be done as follows: 1) every person, Cubs, parents, Den leaders,
   and even siblings should take the test alone. Emphasize to the kids
   that if they don't know what a word is, they should ask an adult. The
   game is supposed to test Fire Safety skills, not reading ability. 2)
   After everyone has answered the questions alone, they should then get
   together by family. Each family should compare answers and circle
   those that aren't the same. Do NOT change 'YOUR' answers after you
   start the family discussion. After you have compared answers on all
   questions, go back and discuss those where the answers aren't the
   same. For answers that don't agree, you should settle on one 'correct'
   family answer. PARENTS, PLEASE LISTEN TO YOUR KIDS IF THEIR ANSWER IS
   DIFFERENT FROM YOURS! KIDS, DON'T ASSUME YOUR PARENT'S ANSWER IS
   RIGHT, AND THAT YOURS IS WRONG. 3) In the final step, each Den should
   get together. The Den Leader should read the answer sheet out loud,
   and the families should see how well they did. Mark the total number
   of right answers for each column in the boxes at the bottom of the
   page. These score sheets are NOT to be turned in, I would like
   families to take them home and talk about them. If any kids do better
   than their parents, please have them bring both game sheets up to me
   at the front. I would also like Den leaders to find out whether any
   families had 100% perfect on the game.
   
   A few questions can use several answers. There is a 'best' answer for
   each of these questions. If you find a question that has more than one
   answer, skip it and come back to it later. EVERY answer should only be
   used once. Use the process of elimination to find the 'best' answer on
   those questions that can use more than one of the answer words.
   
   FIRE SAFETY GAME
   
   INSTRUCTIONS: VERSION 2 This 'game' is has been designed with Cub
   Scouts in mind. The game will be done as follows: 1) every Cub is to
   pair up with an adult (parent), Boy Scout, or older sibling. They
   should work as a team to decide the answers for each question. PLEASE
   make sure the Cubs have a lot of input into the decision-making. 2)
   After everyone has answered the questions as pairs, they should then
   get together by Den. Each Den should compare answers and circle those
   that aren't the same. Do NOT change 'YOUR' answers after you start the
   Den discussion. After you have compared answers on all questions, go
   back and discuss those where the answers aren't the same. For answers
   that don't agree, you should settle on one 'correct' Den answer.
   PLEASE LISTEN TO EVERYONE, ESPECIALLY IF THEIR ANSWER IS DIFFERENT
   FROM YOURS! KIDS, DON'T ASSUME THAT SOMEONE ELSE'S ANSWER IS RIGHT,
   AND THAT YOURS IS WRONG. 3) In the final step, THE Cubmaster should
   read the answer sheet out loud, and the Dens should see how well they
   did. Mark the total number of right answers for each column in the
   boxes at the bottom of the page. These game sheets are NOT to be
   turned in, I would like families to take them home and talk about
   them.
