Having planned and completed an activity, we should always remember to REVIEW. This Plan>Do>Review> Ball features 31 questions for youth members and adults to use to reflect on the activities, programs and events they have been involved in.
These durable balls have been designed to be used by all Sections anytime and anywhere, you might like to use this at the end of a camp, the end of an activity, or even for Scouts to use whilst they are waiting for the rest of the Section to finish an activity. Wherever your thumb lands, read the question and then answer.
Each individual is likely to take something different from the activities, programs and events they are a part of. In order to help reflect on development, these learning tools (one set for Joey Scouts and Cub Scouts; one set for Scouts, Venturer Scouts and Rover Scouts) provide 42 reflective questions that promote members to think about how they might have developed. Use them at the end of an activity, end of a night, as a spare time tool or something completely different, and collectively acknowledge the learnings and development in each of the SPICES development areas. Reviews and discussions from using the SPICES cards might help guide future sections programs.
Any time use (not activity/event specific)
2 sets – one for Joey Scouts and Cub Scouts, one for Scouts, Venturer Scouts and Rover Scouts (Purchased Separately)
