Make up cards that
1. I am the king
of knots because - if I am used correctly - I never slip, and I
am put to use in a variety of rescue operations.
2. I am sometimes
known as the Weavers' knot. I am used by sailors in rigging the
ship. I join two ropes different thicknesses.
3. I must be
female, because I love tying up loose ends! I hate to see rope
ends fray so I sit very snugly and hold them firmly- and, My
don't they look neat when I'm used?
4. I am constantly
used. I'm used to tie the ends of bandages in First Aide, because
I lie flat, and don not hurt, I don't slip or slide, and I can be
undone easily, I'm swear, but I'm very popular!

Have the girls do
it as a relay where the 4 cards are on a chair at the end of the
room with a rope. I have 4 different coloured cards and a set of
2 for two teams. They must one at a time run to the chair, pick
up blue, green, yellow, orange card in order I tell them and tie
the knot that is described the leaders stay near the chairs to
make sure the knot it right.
