One way to use the single letters of the Type B marker sets is to print “all controls” maps.  All the controls are shown on the map with numbers beside each circle but no joining lines.  The numbers can be allocated randomly or in a logical sequence across the map.

 

Each youngster or pair are given a series of control numbers (probably in ascending numerical order) to visit in any order, for example 3,8,11,13,24.   They first identify the controls on the map.   If the maps are laminated they can circle them in permanent felt tip pen (which can be cleaned off later with methylated spirit) and then draw lines between then to create the shortest course that visits all the points.   When they get to each control point they note down the letter, and having collected all the letters return to the start.  They then have to arrange the letters they have collected to form a word that fits the clue they have been given – for example plants, wild animals, makes and models of car etc. This activity is good for literacy as well as developing orienteering skills and is easily differentiated for more able or older children by giving them, longer words.
