Command task 5: Noah's ark

Equipment: Blindfolds and a whistle

Time: 10 minutes

Where: Large indoor or outdoor space

Aim: Each cadet to successfully reunite with their partner

Benefits: Patience and teamwork

Instructions: Split the cadets into pairs and give each pair an animal to impersonate. Then split the pairs up and ensure they are bindfolded and spread out across the area. Now they can only communicate with their partner by impersonating their animal. The cadets should find (after the initial chaos) that taking it in turns to do their animal impressions is the quickest way to identify their partner. 

Make it easier: Create smaller groups and allow them to work closer together

Make it harder: Use a larger group and you could even try introducing other noises to add further confusing
