#2 Trustworthy/Internet Resources



For Augusts' Round Table We Shared Ideas For
September's Scout Law Point: Trustworthy
September's Interest Topic: Internet Resources

Opening Brain Teaser - This would be a great thing to write on the chalk or white board for boys and parents to have something to think about while they wait for everyone to arrive at a Pack or Den Meeting.  (An idea you could use would be to reward the cub scouts a piece of candy if they get it right).
Find the next number in each numeric pattern.
A. 121, 99, 77, 55, ___
B. 15, 22, 29, 36, ___
C. 6, 11, 16, 21, ___
 *Answer is at the end of this section. (scroll down)
(Brain Teaser taken from: The Little Black Book of Mindbenders by John Samson and Elsie Samson; pg. 117)
Gathering Activity
WRITE A FUNNY CAPTION
Materials: Chalkboard, Chalk, shoe box, pencils, paper. Write on the Chalkboard: Go to http://boyslife.org/section/games/write-a-funny-caption./  Look at the 3rd picture and think of your own caption for it.  Write it down and put it in the box.  During the meeting read everyone's caption.
POSSIBLE REQUIREMENTS RELATED TO OR THAT CAN BE PASSED OFF
Bear Elective Adventure -Roaring Laughter - Requirement 1
Think about what makes you laugh.  Write down three things that make you laugh.

Flag Ceremony Idea
CUB SCOUT OPENING
Materials: Each letter of C-U-B S-C-O-U-T should be cut out from poster board or printed on large pieces of paper or card stock. Write the lines on the back in large print and line
up the Cub Scouts so they can read the lines in order.
Cub #1: C is for Comradeship. We learn to get along.
Cub #2: U is for Unity. Together we are strong.
Cub #3: B is for Boys! Sometimes we’re wild, but mostly we’re nice.
Cub #4: S is for Spirit! Full of energy and always nice.
Cub #5: C is for Courtesy. This we know.
Cub #6: O is for Outings. We can’t wait to go!
Cub #7: U is for Universal. Scouts are known in every land.
Cub #8: T is for Teamwork. We’ll lend you a helping hand.
All: We will do our best!
Cubmaster: Will you please rise for the Pledge of Allegiance?.

Cub Scout Leader Thank You Cards

I think it would be a miss, if I did not mention using this blog as a resource.  Go to the blog archive on the left-hand side of the screen. (remember that if you are using your cell phone, you need to scroll down to the bottom and click on 'view web version' first to see the left and right hand sides of this blog.
Using the blog archive click on Feb 2015 - Compassion/Aware and Care and you will find the links to download this card for printing. It would be a great idea to have the Cub Scouts of any Den Leader sign the card and give it to him/her at a pack meeting.

With blue painters tape, make a 9 square grid on the floor that looks like a Tic Tac Toe board.  On the back of 5 paper plates draw an X. On the back of 5 more paper plates draw an O. Have the players try to throw the paper plates like a Frisbee into their desired squares to get Tic Tax Toe to win.
