CITIZEN

COMMUNITY GROUP

Remember – Citizen is a required Activity badge for the Webelos Badge.  CD

The Plan:

The Citizen Activity Badge is recommended to be presented in a two month format, as outlined in the Webelos Leaders Book.  This example outline presents the Badge in eight weekly meetings.  It is possible to accomplish enough requirements in four or five weeks but that leaves little time for games and fun activities to assist with the learning. Every requirement in the first section is covered in the outline in eight meetings.  Each Scout who attends all meetings will satisfy all of the first set of requirements. 

The electives can be worked on partly in the Den meeting, partly at home. The Webelos Leader may wish to pick the  electives for the Den to avoid confusion.  Number 8, Visit a community leader, as a field trip outside the Den meeting time, to visit the City Mayor.  Also, requirements 12 or 13 can be requirements that are done by each Scout.  The remaining electives are then discussed, in some detail, during the Den meetings, in order to impart a good deal of information to the Scouts and hopefully increase their thinking skills as a Citizen.

A note:  Most of the things the Scouts will learn when working on this badge will be forgotten quickly.  Have each Webelos create a notebook to record what he has learned.  The WL could prepare fill in the blank pages - names of President and Vice President, Governor, Flag history (Print pictures of several flags and have write something about each one), write out the Pledge in sections and have boys define several each word or phrase, …  You should hold a friendly competition quizzing them on the basic points each meeting.  Beads or other prizes will help.  This is also the right time to start having each scout take a turn leading the opening flag ceremony.

Use the Webelos book in the meeting.  Have the Scouts read sections from the book.  Use all the resources you have available, such as the Program Helps and the Webelos Leader Book.  Make sure you sign off their books each meeting.

At first glance, you might assume this Activity Badge will be rather dry, but in actuality, the Citizen Activity Badge offers a myriad of opportunities for the boys to expand their relationship with their community while having a lot of fun.


 

Speakers

Mayor, politician, history teacher, judge, police officer.

Field Trips

«  Visit a local government building (the State House, the Capitol Building , or Library of Congress.

«  Attend a court hearing

«  Plan a trip (Traveler) to visit your Senator or Representative in Washington, DC.

Pack Meetings

«  Bring some items which show what you have studied this month: election literature, information on good citizens, chamber of commerce, or local village center.

Den Activities

Citizen Scavenger Hunt: Most government buildings have some form of tour and you might be able to combine the tour

with your scavenger hunt. Divide the den into two or three teams and give the boys a reasonable time limit. Have them

locate answers to questions as well as inexpensive available items. Examples for these would be:

1)         What is the middle initial in the full name of our town’s mayor? What does the initial stand for?

2)         Bring back a piece of stationery showing our county’s logo or crest.

3)         Draw a picture of our state flag.

4)         On what floor can you find _____ _____? (a symbolic statue, historical artifact, etc.)

5)         Who runs the Water Works Department and what does that department do?

6)         Where does the City or County Council meet?

7)         What’s on the top floor of the building?

8)         What is the full name of the governor of the state?

9)         Get a brochure about trash pickup services.

10)      Who takes care of snow removal from city or county streets and what is their budget?

These are just a few examples of the kinds of things your scavenger hunt could require. Ask someone who handles the public relations for your local government to help you make up a list. If you don’t want to make it competitive, just have different lists for the teams to complete and then have them report back to the group when the time’s up.

“Wanted: Good Citizen” Poster Project

Imagine the type of citizen you would want to be a part of your community. How would the person act? What would the person look like?

Design a WANTED poster of the ideal citizen. Cut and paste a picture or photo on a sheet of paper of the citizen you are

wanting. It can be a picture or photo of someone you cut from a magazine or you can draw a picture of a real or pretend person. Then, describe the person physically and also describe his or her personality traits. Example: Wanted person with good humor, a concern for others, and ability to get along with others. Then, complete the following statements on your poster: This person was last seen in . He/she was , once again showing himself/herself an active and responsible citizen. If you have seen or have any information about this person, please contact . This person is an ideal citizen because.

Citizenship Baseball

Before the game begins, write 40 questions with answers on strips of paper, assign each question a “hit”. Examples:

«  Who is the president of the United States? (single) [answer: George W. Bush]

«  Name two of the four levels of government in the United States. (double) [answer: federal, state, county, and local]

«  When should a Cub Scout salute the United States flag? (triple) [answer: When the flag is being hoisted or lowered; the flag passes by or you pass the flag; you recite the Pledge of Allegiance]

«  What is our national anthem and who wrote it? (home run) [answer: “The Star-Spangled Banner”, Francis Scott Key]

Directions

ü  Fold the strips of paper and place them in a bowl or hat.

ü  Set up areas as the baseball diamond.

ü  Divide Webelos into two teams - one begins in the “outfield” and the other team is “at bat”.

ü  A batter comes up, he draws a question from the hat.

ü  The leader reads the question.

ü  If the Webelos gets the correct answer, he takes his base.

ü  If he misses it, it is an out.

ü  After three outs, the teams reverse.

More Ideas

Ask a parent in your den or pack (if you have a parent in public service) or invite a guest who is a politician, judge, police officer, fire fighter, or county administrator to come and talk about their career. How did they get interested? Where did they go to school? What kinds of courses did they take? Have they moved up through several jobs to get where they are? What is their future?

Greater St. Louis Area Council

Citizen

At first glance, you might think this achievement offers a variety of opportunities for the boys to expand their thinking about their relationship with their community while having fun. Good citizenship is emphasized throughout Scouting. The boys will learn what good citizenship is all about while doing this activity.

Den Activities

P Attend a court hearing

P Invite a local politician, police officer or judge to your den meeting

P Plan and carry out a citizenship project or litter campaign

P Discuss ways the boys can be good citizens

P Observe the voting process

P Invite a “new” citizen to talk to the boys and tell what becoming a citizen means to them

Information Every Citizen Should Know

Who succeeds the President? Everyone knows that in the case of the death of the President, the Vice-President would take over the Presidency. However, what happens if the Vice-President also dies? Congress dealt with this issue in the 1940’s and decided that the following people should take over the Presidency in the order given (1):

1st:       The Vice President

2nd:     Speaker of the House

3rd:     President pro tempore of the Senate (2)

4th:      Secretary of State

5th:      Secretary of the Treasury

6th:      Secretary of Defense

7th:      Attorney General

8th:      Secretary of the Interior

9th:      Secretary of Agriculture

10th:   Secretary of Commerce

11th:   Secretary of Labor

12th:   Secretary of Health and Human Services

13th:   Secretary of Housing and Urban Development

14th:   Secretary of Transportation

15th:   Secretary of Energy

16th:   Secretary of Education

17th:   Secretary of Veterans Affairs

18th:   Secretary of Homeland Security

NOTES:

1)         An official cannot succeed to the Presidency unless that person meets the Constitutional requirements.

2)         The president pro tempore presides over the Senate when the vice president is absent. The president pro tempore is elected by the Senate, but by tradition the position is held by the senior member of the majority party.

This succession was first established by an
Act of Congress on July 18, 1947.  It has been modified as the positions in the President's Cabinet have changed.

Citizenship Pledge

As citizens we will do our best to be prepared in body and will, in spirit and skill. We accept our obligation to God and will show by our actions we are wiling to serve others, and be good members of the Scouting team.

Symbols of Freedom

Bald Eagle – noted for its strength, is an important symbol of our country. Its beauty in flight invokes the idea of freedom so integral to our system of government. Since 1792, the eagle has served as the central motif of the Great Seal of the United States. On the seal, the eagle brandishes the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace to represent the strength and liberty of our nation.

American Flag – adopted by the First Continental Congress in 1777 to represent the 13 new states. The original resolution officially designed the U.S. flag as 13 alternating red and white stripes and 13 white stars in a blue field. The American flag has become the main symbol of our nation and people.

Bell – symbolizes American independence and liberty. Located in Philadelphia’s Independence Hall, it rung on July 8 , 1776, to proclaim the Declaration of Independence. Later it became associated with the antislavery movement.

Statue of Liberty – was a gift to the U.S. from France to commemorate America’s 100th birthday. Dedicated in 1886, it was placed in New York Harbor. It is sculpted with a copy of the Declaration of Independence in one hand and a torch in the other, symbols which reflect the freedom and opportunity offered by the United States.

Games

Independence Tag

As in all tag games, “it” pursues the rest of the players and tries to touch one of them. When one has been touched, he must keep his hand on the spot where he was touched and pursue the others. His hand cannot be freed from this spot until he has tagged someone else. The idea is to tag people in inconvenient places…on the ankle, knee, etc.

Drawing Columbus’ Ship

This is a good quiet game for Den meetings. All that is needed is one pencil or marking pen and one piece of paper. The first player draws a line. He passes the pen to the next players, but keeps the pen on the paper at all times. Everyone has a turn, each trying to add the lines to draw Columbus’ ship. Having a picture available of Columbus’ ship might also help.

American Heritage

Make posters of well-known buildings or symbols and put them up around the room. Number each poster. Give each person a piece of paper which is also numbered. Ask him to identify the posters and write the proper names by its corresponding number on the sheet of paper. Suggestions are: American flag, White House, Lincoln Memorial, Eagle, Presidential Seal, Uncle Sam, Statue of Liberty, etc.

Geography

Divide into teams. One team picks out a place on a U.S. map, calls out the name and challenges the other team to find it in four minutes. If the other team gets it in the time limit, they get one point. If they do not, the other team gets the point. The game ends when one team has earned 5 points.


 

Star Makers

Give everyone a piece of paper, about 5” square. At the signal to go, each player rips the paper, trying to make a five-pointed star. When 30 seconds are up, the judge calls “Time” and everyone has to stop whether he’s finished or not. The judge then inspects the stars, giving a prize to the person with the best star.

Minuteman Run

To play this game, you’ll need a group of about 10 Cubs. The players form a circle and hold hands. A person who is chosen “it” stands inside the circle. He walks around the circle, tapping each player’s hands as he says each word of the rhyme,” Red, white, blue, out goes you”. The two persons he taps on the word, “You”, runs around the circle in opposite directions. “It” steps into one of the empty places. The last one to get back to the other empty place becomes “it.”

Hand in Hand Flag

Give each boy some red and white construction paper. Have them collect hand tracings of their family and friends to bring to a meeting. On some extra white paper have them get 50 hand tracings of children under 4 years old. Make blue tracings of the den’s hands. Cut one the tracings. Take “contact” paper and place sticky side up on a table. Arrange the hand tracings in the form of the U. S. flag (stripes-starting and ending with red, white, in between red. Blue for the union and the small white hand tracings for the stars). You may choose t have the person’s names and cities or states written on the tracings, this makes a good pack meeting display.

COMMUNICATOR

COMMUNITY GROUP

Baltimore Area Council

We are all communicators. What does it mean to communicate? Communication is the art of transmitting and receiving information. And how do we as human beings go about this exchange of information? We communicate with words, facial expressions and body language. As the

human race developed, so did our communicative skills. Early man drew pictures on the walls of caves. With the development of language came a better way to keep records and tell stories...writing!

With the discovery of electricity came the telegraph, telephone, radio, television, computers, micro-wave transmission, optical fibers, lasers, and on and on and on.

Who makes a good communicator? We do, of course!

With all of the modern technology at our fingertips today, it is still important for us to learn basic communication skills.

Skills that will be with us throughout our entire lives. Things, like how to talk to one another with respect, how to listen to one another. Silly things, like saying “please” and “thank you.” Things like learning good telephone manners and practicing being polite and courteous to others.

Games

Play a game of Charades.

Blindness Awareness Game: How would you go about describing something to a blind person? An animal for instance,

one they have never seen? Try this exercise, blindfold your den, give them each a pencil and a piece of paper, then

describe to them an animal and have them draw what they think they hear. Remove the blindfolds and see if they can

guess what animal they have drawn. Hint: Don’t use any key words. Example, if you are describing an elephant don’t

use the word trunk for his nose.

Communication with the blind: Have your den form a large circle. In the center place an empty coffee can. Blindfold one of the boys and supply him with a broomstick. The object of the game is to have the den direct the blind Scout to the can and have him pick it up with the broomstick.

Was it easy? Does it work better with one boy giving directions of all of them?

Secret Sounds: Use prerecorded sounds or have den chief produce sounds from behind a screen or another room.

Webelos listen as each sound is produced and then write down what they think the sound is. Example: Sandpaper rubbing against something, a deck of cards being flipped into the air, a golf ball or Ping Pong ball bouncing on a bare floor; bursting of a paper bag, etc.

Newsletter

Have the boys use their knowledge of communications to set up a den newsletter with a calendar of upcoming events, a listing of supplies needed at future den meetings, a reporting of den activities, and acknowledgments of people who have helped with recent den programming.

This amusing way for expressing actions and moods will cause boys and parents more fun than you can imagine. A fun way to start is to have boys in a circle. The leader makes an action and players exaggerate their version. Then make up your own mime and have fun!

ü  Say with your hand, “Stop”

ü  Say with your head, “Stop”

ü  Say with your shoulder, “I bumped the door”

ü  Say with your fingers,” This is hot!”

ü  Say with your nose, “I smell fresh pie”

ü  Make up your own gestures.

GAMES

Win, Lose or Draw

Divide into two teams. The equipment needed for this activity includes a one-minute timer, drawing marker, a pad of newsprint on an easel and a box with object cards. One member of a team chooses an object card and tries to draw it on the newsprint. His team tries to guess what he is drawing within one minute. If the team guesses the object, they receive three points. If the team is unsuccessful, the drawing is passed to the other team to guess within 30 seconds. An accurate guess is worth two points. If they too, are not successful, guessing is opened up to both teams together for another 30 seconds, and an accurate guess is worth only 1 point. Play continues when the second team chooses an object card and draws it. The winner is the team with the most points after a designated period of time. Charades are not allowed for hints.

Ideas For Object Cards: Blue and Gold, U.S. Flag, Cub Scout, Neckerchief Slide, Award, Cub master, Table Decorations, Parents, Den, Summer Activity Award, Bobcat, Campfire, Pack Flag, Council Patch, Bear, Pinewood Derby, Wolf, Tiger, Arrow of Light, Skit, Applause, Webelos Activity Badge, Uniform, Webelos.

International Symbols

Have Cubs figure out which symbol is which. 

Play BINGO by making various arrangements of the symbols, then calling out what they are for boys to place markers on them.

Tower of Playing Cards

Equipment: Several decks of playing cards (all the same size)

Divide the boys into teams and have them build a tower with playing cards (Skip-be, Uno, Fish can be mixed if they are the same size.)

Here’s the catch. The boys cannot say one single word while building the tower - it all has to be done with sign and body language. When the tower is built, each team uses their verbal skills by deciding on a package that “sells” their tower. Why it’s the best, tallest, grandest, wackiest, most pleasing, sturdiest, most stable, etc.

They will darken so they can be read.

Here is a different approach. Draw your message in code or in picture writing using a white crayon on white paper. The receiver uses watercolors to find the message.

Rules For On-Line Safety

1.    I will talk with my parents so that we can set up rules for going online. We will decide on the time of day that I can be online, the length of time I can be online, and appropriate web sites for me to visit. If I want to visit other web sites, I will get their permission first.

2.    While I'm online, I will not give out personal information such as my address, telephone number, parents' work addresses/telephone numbers, or the name of my school without my parents' permission.

3.    I will tell my parents right away if I come across any information that makes me feel uncomfortable.

4.    I will not respond to any messages that are mean or in any way make me feel uncomfortable. It is not my fault if I get a message like that. If I do, I will tell my parents right away so that they can contact the online service.

5.    I will never agree to get together with someone I meet online without first checking with my parents. If my parents agree to the meeting, I will be sure that it is in a public place and I will bring a parent or my adult guardian along.

6.    While I'm online, I will never send a person my picture or anything else without first checking with my parents.

 

Can you read what the hands are saying in the message?
