Core Value: Citizenship ideas for the Wolf Den and Bear Den - Skits, Game, Song, Crafts and Activities

Core Value: Citizenship

 Skit, Joke or Run-on:
One Cub acts as teacher, others as students.

Teacher: Today class, we are going to learn about the American Revolution.  More than 200 years ago our forefathers defeated the British army in the revolutionary war.
Student 1: They defeated the whole army?
Teacher: Yes!
Student 2: Our four fathers?
Teacher: Yes! Isn’t that exciting?
Student 3: Yeah! They must have been really strong if it only took four of them to defeat a whole army!

Game: Flag Race
Items needed:
8 - 9”x 2” strips of red paper
6 - 9”x 2” strips of white paper
6 - 18”x 2” strips of red paper
6 - 18”x 2” strips of white paper
2 - 14”x 9” rectangles of blue paper
100 white stars (50 need to fit on blue paper) Variation 26 stars - the original flag had 13 stars in a circle.
Divide into two teams. On signal, each team tries to assemble their paper flag before the other team.  Variation: do individual time trials.  The boy with the fastest time overall wins.

Song: The Cub Scout Pack Song (Tune: You’re a Grand old Flag)

We’re a Cub Scout pack, we’re a high-flying pack;
Down the trail of Akela we go.
From Wolf to Bear to We-be-los,
As into good Scouters we grow.

Every Cub is true to the gold and the blue,
And he never forgets the fact
That all the fun a boy could want
He can find in the Cub Scout pack.
Utah National Parks Council Pow Wow Book 2012-2013 pg 60
