After translating the morse message together, they’ll start with the stands. 1–> at the first stand the chief will give an azimuth to indicate the place where the guides have to look for the hidden flags of their own country; then they’ll have to build a ladder to reach them. 2–> the chief will tell the girls that a misterious animal is hiding around: they will see it only after pronouncing a magic sentence they have to create respectively in the other squadron’s language ( the sentence has to rhyme and they obviously must know the meaning). 3–> time relay race, with the purpose to get the little sheets with the names of public personalities of their own two countries; they have to group the personalities basing on their functions ( i.g.: Napolitano/ Hollande –> politicians). 4–> they will have to create, by using only natural materials, some objects to offer the Lord. Moreover They will have to compose a thanking prayer in English language by which they are explaning the symbol value and expressing their gratitude for the wonderful living experience.

Slaves escaping from the South were told to follow the « drinking gourd » to a better life. This is because the Big Dipper is circumpolar, meaning it can be see in the North all night long.
