                        This year (2008) is the year of Rat and the Chinese New Year is starting on February 7.
                       The Chinese New Year depends on the phases of the moon and usually occurs between the
                                             middle of January and the middle of February.

The first in line is the head of the dragon, and the last is the tail.
The head tries to catch the tail by maneuvering the line around so       for the New Year
that he can tag the end player. The line must not break. All other       These two lucky characters

                                                         Tiger Cubs
Achievement 4, How I Tell It
This requirement is about Communication. Getting our Tigers to talk with others and be positive in what they say. They may
learn how to carry on conversations and a little about mass communication.
Tigers can learn there are many modes of communication – when we talk, write, dance, sing or draw pictures. We
communicate too with our faces when we frown or smile and our bodies with how we stand or move our arms.
Our uniforms and beads (on our Tiger totems) and patches communicate information about who we are and what we like to
do.
Adults communicate through newspapers, magazines, books (Harry Potter) television and radio. Be open to showing all
these to your Tigers to help them Search, Discover and Share.
Achievement 4 Family Activity
4F - At a family meal, have each family member take turns telling the others one thing that happened to him or her that day.
Remember to practice being a good listener while you wait for your turn to talk.
Mealtime conversations should be kept positive. Sharing your day’s activities could be become a regular family activity. Try
to do this at a meal when everyone is there. Sharing amongst family members is always good so try to keep doing it even if
only a few members are present.
The requirement helps promote Family Understanding, one of the Ten Purposes of Cub Scouting!!
This requirement involves doing a Character Connection on Respect. There are three elements to every Character
Connection. A Tiger must first know what is correct, then practice doing it and finally commit to doing it in the future. If you
want more info on Character Connections there is a BSA Bin Item 13-323A or go to Bill Smith’s Virtual roundtable at -
http://www.wtsmith.com/rt/chardev.html
For the Respect Character Connection –
Know – Have the Tiger discuss how he can show respect while talking with others. How to listen respectfully. How he may
interrupt and still be respectful.
Practice – Have him participate in a family conversation (The one for this requirement would be great!!) Then discuss how
he and others showed respect.
Commit – Have him discuss how it felt to be respected while he talked and how he felt showing respect o others. Have him
make a list of three things to remember to help him talk respectfully.
Achievement 4 Den Activity
4D - Play "Tell It Like It Isn't"
This is the old “Whistling Down the Alley” game where the boys line up and pass a secret along. By the time it gets to the
end, it usually is different than the start. The more boys the more fun. The Adults should join in, too, to make the line
longer.
After the game discuss how things your Tiger may hear may not always be accurate. That messages change as they are passed
from person to person. Discuss, too, how unkind words (gossip) can do harm and is often untrue. Cubs should only try and
say things that are true. Honesty is a core value of Cub Scouting.

Achievement 4 Go and See It
4G - Visit a television station, radio station, or newspaper office. Find out how people there communicate with others.
This is very easy. Where I live we have a great radio station, WJBR (www.wjbr.com) that invites Scouts up to tour. Then, if
the Den wants to, they tape them saying the Pledge of Allegiance. Every day at 7:00 AM, they play a tape of a group (school
class, Den, Troop, Club). They even came to my roundtable and had us one morning saying the Pledge. I really like it
when I hear a Tiger Den; they are so honest and excited. And most say it correctly – saying “One Nation Under God” as a
continuous phrase without a pause. Of course it helps that the morning DJ, Michael Waite, grew up in Indiana, the Heartland
of America, and his assistant, Mr. Rhoads is an experienced Philmont trekker!! I have heard the Pledge said on several other
area stations so maybe there is one by you.
Our local newspaper encourages tours. When my son’s Den went for Communicator, they inserted a picture of the Den on the
front page and ran enough copies so each Scout could get one!!

A Tangram is an ancient Chinese puzzle. This activity is sometimes called “seven pieces of cleverness,” named for the seven
pieces that were used. The object of the puzzle is to rearrange the pieces of a square (the puzzle pieces) to form figures (like a
picture of a cat) using the tangram pieces. File folders, cardstock or thick paper work well to make tangrams.
Start by making a square, then cut into pieces as shown. The thin (grey) lines are reference lines. The thick (red) lines are the
actual cut lines to form the 7 tangram pieces.

Taiwanese Opening
The Cubmaster begins by greeting everyone as they would be greeted in Taiwan:
               Ni'hao (pronounced Nee-how) means "Hello"
The Cubmaster then leads the Pack in the Taiwan version of the Cub Scout Promise. He/She says a phrase and the Pack repeats
it:
               I promise to do my best
               To do my duty to God/ my religion, the King and my country,
               To keep the Cub law
               To do a Good Turn to someone everyday.

Welcome and Happy New Year Opening
Cub Scout #1: Welcome to America! - Where there are more than 3 million people that are from China or claim Chinese
descent. We’d like to wish a Happy New Year to them.
Cub Scout #2: Chinese New Year’s Day this year is on February 7th and the celebration lasts for 15 days.
Cub Scout #3: Wow! That’s a long celebration!
Cub Scout #1: Let’s all say, “Gung Hay Fat Choy” [Everyone says, “Gung Hay Fat Choy”]. “Gung Hay Fat Choy” means
“Best wishes and congratulations. Have a prosperous and good year.”
Cub Scout #3: Before our celebration of Chinese New Year this evening begins, please join me in the Pledge of Allegiance.
New Year Traditions
Preparation: Have the words to the Chinese Cub Scout Promise written on programs or on large posters at front of the room.
CUB SCOUT 1: Many traditions are associated with the Chinese New Year, a time of new beginnings.
CUB SCOUT 2: Fruits are displayed in homes and stores. Tangerines and oranges represent good luck and wealth, and apples
symbolize peace and safety.
CUB SCOUT 3: If a flower bud opens exactly on New Year’s Day, it is believed that a year of good fortune is ahead.
CUB SCOUT 4: Dragon dances bring good luck, and firecrackers keep evil spirits away.
CUB SCOUT 5: Grown-ups give children red envelopes. What’s inside? Lucky money!
CUB SCOUT 6: As Chinese people wish for good fortune for the New Year, we wish good fortune and bright futures for all
of our Cub Scout families as we start our own Blue & Gold celebration.
CUB SCOUT 7: Let us say the Cub Scout as it is said in China:
         I'll obey my elders, help others
         Tell no lies and will not be afraid of any difficulty.
Gifts
Personnel: 7 Cubs
Setting: Sing or chant the following verse with a different motion added for each new "gift". Keep all the old motions going as
each new one is added and have everyone in the Pack follow the motions of the Cubs.
Cub 1: My ship sailed from China all laden with tea. And loaded with goodies for you and me. They gave me a:
Cub 2: Fan (wave hand)
Cub 3: Brush (move other hand over hair)
Cub 4: Stamp (stick tongue in and out to lick)
Cub 5: Flower (wrinkle nose to smell)
Cub 6: Camel (bend knees)

                                                  Advancement Ceremonies
Orient Advancement
Personnel : Cubmaster ( or Advancement Chair ), 4 other Leaders
Props : Pictures of a rabbit, cow, tiger, horse, and dragon ( Oriental drawings would give a better effect )
Cubmaster ( or Advancement Chair ): As we continue our trip through the Orient, we now come to the part where we
recognize our boys for their achievements.
1st Leader: ( holds up picture of rabbit ) In Oriental mythology, the rabbit is a sign of happiness and learning. This is similar
to the boys who have earned their Bobcat badge. They have learned the basics of Cub Scouting and are happy to continue on
to their next step.
Cubmaster or Advancement Chair : Will these boys and their parents please come forward to receive their Bobcat Badges. (
call boys and parents up; give badge to parents to present to boys.)
2nd Leader: ( holds up picture of cow ) The Cow is a symbol of hard work and determination. This represents the boys
earning their Wolf Badge. They have worked hard for this badge, and are determined to achieve the next step in Cub
Scouting.
Cubmaster or Advancement Chair : Will these boys and their parents please come forward to receive their Wolf badges and
Arrow Points. (Call boys and parents forward; give badges to parents to present to their sons)
3rd Leader : ( holds up picture of tiger ) The Tiger is a symbol of bravery and is also very active and aggressive. Just as our
boys who have earned their Bear Badges are very brave for achieving this honor and are aggressively pursuing the next step in
Cub-Scouting.
Cubmaster or Advancement Chair : Will these boys and their parents please come forward to receive their Bear badges and
Arrow Points. (Call boys and parent forward ; give badges to parent to present to sons.)
4th Leader : ( holds up picture of horse ) The horse is a symbol of bravery, activeness, and always wanting to go forward. It is
similar to the boys of our pack who have earned their Webelos Badge. Always going forward and not wanting to stop.
Cubmaster or Advancement Chair : Will these boys and their parents please come forward. ( Call boys and parent up ; give
badges and any activity pins to parent to present to their sons.
Cubmaster : ( holds up picture of dragon ) The Dragon is a symbol used to identify people who have achieved a high status. It
is appropriate that we use this symbol to recognize our boys who have earned their Arrow of Light. The highest achievement
in the Cub Scout program. I am very proud to present this award to the following boys. As I call your names, please come
forward with your parents. (call boys and parents forward ; give badges to parents to present to boys )
Cubmaster or Advancement Chair : Let’s congratulate all the boys on their achievements.

Gateway to the Orient
Personnel: Cubmaster, 2 Cubs, Cubs advancing and Parents
Equipment: Cubmaster is dressed in oriental dress, a cardboard box shaped like a pagoda with the awards inside.
Cubmaster: Since our theme this month is Gateway to the Orient we decided to have 2 of our Cub Scouts go exploring in the
Orient to see what they could find. Look, here they come now.
Let’s see what they have ... (2 Cub Scouts enter carrying the pagoda which they place on the ground by the Cubmaster or on

Great Wall Advancement
Just as the Great Wall of China was built one block at a time, Cub Scouts earn each badge of rank, one requirement at a time.
Each rank builds upon the things the Cub learned before. Each rank pushes the Cub to achieve a, little more and climb a little
higher.
Tonight, ________ has earned his ________ badge. I would like to have him come forward and add another block to our
Great Wall. But wait, our blocks are too heavy for him to lift alone. We need his parents to come and help lift the block in
place. (Have boys use a cardboard box that has had a picture of his rank attached.)
Our Great Wall needs many more blocks from many more Cub Scouts before it is completed. (Continue to call each boy and
his parents to come help build the Wall)
Congratulations to our boys and their parents who have helped build this Great Wall by achieving their ranks.

Arrow of Light - Webelos Arrow of Light Candle Lighting
PERSONNEL: Akela, Arrow of Light Award Candidate and parents, two Webelos Scouts.
EQUIPMENT: Arrow of Light Ceremonial Board, four red candles, three White candles, Arrow of Light Award Certificate,
straight pins.
ARRANGEMENT: Akela and two Webelos Scouts stand at left of candles, Candidate and parents at right.
1ST. WEBELOS: (lights four red candles) The four red candles represent Bobcat, Wolf, Bear, and Scout. The Arrow of Light
means progress along the trail from Bobcat Cub Scout to Scout -- the trail to good citizenship. That is why the Arrow of light
was chosen as the award for the highest rank in Cub Scouting.
2ND WEBELOS (Lights white candles): Webelos means, We'll be loyal Scouts." Loyalty is one of the important things a Cub
Scout stands for. He is loyal to his God, his country, and his home.
AKELA : (To Arrow of Light Candidate) (Name), will you give me the Cub Scout sign and repeat the Cub Scout Promise.
(He does so.) To you I give the Arrow of Light Award and Certificate to present to your son. The badge is worn on his Cub
Scout uniform -- centered on the left shirt pocket. He may also wear it on his Scout uniform when he joins a troop.
(Parent pins badge on uniform.)
I salute you, (Name), as a qualified Webelos Scout. May you soon know the adventures of a Scout. (Give handshake to
Webelos, shakes hands with parents.)

Advancement - Arrow Point Ladder Ceremony
Preparation: Ceremony board resembles a ladder; the top rung representing the Boy Scout with lower rungs representing the
Cub ranks. Between each Cub rank a vacant rung representing the elective achievements. Each rung representing the Cub rank
supports a candle. At the beginning of the ceremony the Cubmaster lights candles. As boys are awarded Gold and Silver
arrow points the candle representing his rank is moved to the vacant rung representing his progress.
CUBMASTER: Den Chief (name) will you please escort Wolf (name) and Bear (name) to the ceremonial circle? (Den Chief
escorts Cub to front) Cub Scouts, each of you have taken another step forward and upward in your climb to the rank of Boy
Scout. With the help of your parents and Den Leaders, the climb has been much easier.
Will the parents of these boys come forward please? (Den Chief escorts parents to stand in position behind their boy.) Wolf
(name), for the extra work on your Wolf electives, I present to your parents in your behalf the gold arrow point of Cub
Scouting. (Cubmaster moves candle to appropriate rung and congratulates parents and boy).
Bear, (name), having received the gold arrow point some time ago, indicates to me your desire to advance still farther up the
ladder. In your behalf, I present to your parents the silver arrow point of Cub Scouting. Wear it proudly. (Cubmaster again
moves candle to appropriate rung on ladder and congratulates parents and boy).
To each of you that have received awards today, again, Congratulations! And to you boys and parents still striving for coveted
awards, work hard that you may attain your goal, the top rung of Cub Scouting.

                                                          Sam Houston Area Council
                                                 In China, the dragon is a symbol of good luck.
                                          During the New Year’s holiday, people have a dragon parade.




Here’s a dragon that you can make for your own parade.
Materials
! Two different colors of construction paper
! Scissors
! Pencil
! Ruler
! Craft sticks, dowels, tongue depressors or even chopsticks (for holding the dragon)
! Tape
! Glue
! Poster board or cardstock for stiffening the dragon's head
! Crayons or markers
! Sequins for eyes
! Dragon head pattern
! Colored tissue paper (several colors) in ½” to ¾ strips least 12 inches long
Instructions
Dragon Head
1. Enlarge the dragon head pattern to fill a piece of construction paper (or larger if you have bigger paper and a plotter)
2. Color the dragon head.
3. Glue it to the poster board or cardstock and let it dry.
Forming the dragon body. using the two long construction paper strips,
4. From the construction paper, cut several 1” wide strips from both of your colors of construction paper until you have
    enough to make (by taping strips together) two different colored 36" strips
5. Take the end of one long strip and lay it crosswise over the end of the other strip. (You can tape these beginning ends
    together).
6. Now take turns folding one strip over the other until your strips runs out. Tape the two ends of the strip together and then
    open the dragon body.
7. Glue the dragon body to the back of the dragon head.
8. Glue several tissue paper strips to form the tail of the dragon.
9. Attach a craft stick (or other stick) to the dragon’s head and another craft stick to the dragon's tail - you will hold onto the
    dragon in these two places during the dragon parade.

                                                       Neckerchief Slides
                                                  Utah National Parks Council
Panda Bear: Use 1 white 1½ or 2 inch pompom for each bear. You will need 2 small black pompoms for the ears and 2
small white pompoms for the cheeks. Use two small wiggly eyes. You can use a tiny black pompom for the nose if desired.
Glue a ring to the back for the neckerchief to the threaded through. (Note: I like to use expandable fake wedding bands for
backs so that they can be made tighter or looser.)
New Year Banner: Write Happy New Year in Chinese on red laminated card stock. This is an easy inexpensive way to go.
Put a ring on the back of the paper and you're finished.
Paper Kite: Make this with toothpicks and tissue paper or construction paper strips make cute neckerchief slides, either with a
diamond-shaped kite or a box kite, with or without tails. Tails are fun but can be caught easily and break the slide.
Zodiac Animals: You could also let the boys research their Chinese Zodiac Sign and make paper animals or more pompom
animals. The snake is very simple–a pipe cleaner and wiggly eyes. Twist it around your finger loosely. However, Webelos
would have been born in 1997, so the year of the ox would be appropriate. Nine year olds would have been born in 1998
which was the year of the tiger. The eight year olds would have been born in 1999 which was the year of the hare. All these
animals are very easy to make with pompoms, but you will need a little felt or pellon to make ears and strips and horns. Have
fun!!!
                                              Make Your Own Chinese Abacus
                                                   Sam Houston Area Council
   Have the Cub Scouts make and learn to use an abacus. Here are some simple instructions for making a 5-digit abacus.
Materials (for 1 abacus):
         9 - 4 1/2" craft sticks
         1 4 1/2 by 4 1/2 inch cardboard sheet If you used different size craft sticks, adjust size to match size of craft sticks)
         5 stir sticks – round, not flat
         35 pony beads (optional: 25 of one color and 10 of another color)
Notes:
! Be careful in using the glue gun. A low temperature glue gun is best when working with Cub Scouts.
! Use tweezers to remove the “hot glue spider webs” from around the beads so that the beads can move freely.
! The “straws with beads” are just pony beads on mini coffee stirrer straws (round ones, not flat ones). You can get coffee
    stirrers at a grocery store. The beads need to slide on the straws so don't glue them!
! Also, the Chinese abacus has 5 beads below (earth) and 2 beads above (heaven) the middle cross bar. You can make the
    beads different colors for above and below the cross bar.




                                                     Chinese Juggling Sticks
                                                  Brenda, Last Frontier Council
These Juggling Sticks originated in China a couple of thousand years ago. The pompoms on the ends of them look like
flowers, therefore the name for this toy translates into flower stick. The Juggling Stick is an empowering toy. Learning to play
Juggling Sticks gives the player a sense of control that comes from mastering something that is challenging and fun. (Think
Cub Scout Core Value - Perseverance and CS Purposes - Personal Achievement and Fun and Adventure) Also, developing
concentration, eye-hand coordination and the stress relief that comes from rhythmic and focused movement. They are good
for solitary or noncompetitive interactive play.

Materials:
    1 - 5/8" X 24" hardwood dowel for the baton
    2 - 3/8" X 18" hardwood dowels for the handsticks
    A couple of yards of colored electrical or duct tape (1/2" wide) - The more colors used, the more colorful the sticks!
    1 roll -- Rubber tape (available at electrical supply or hardware stores).
    Small standard roll of duct tape.
    3 -- 4" X 12" strips of felt that will match tape colors or recycled material - (such as leather, jeans, fur or other thick
    material that would look nice around the ends).
    1 container of a permanent fabric adhesive
Instructions:
For the Baton
! Find center of longest dowel by measuring. (12" from each end)
! Wrap tape on either side of center and put a strip of colored tape around center.
! Take the same colored tape as in center and, beginning from the outside center, wrap it around the stick in candy cane
    fashion leaving space for the width of rubber tape to also be wrapped around in candy cane style.
! Wrap the rubber tape around in the same way, covering the dowel with alternating rubber and colored tape Do this from
    center to both ends.
! Wrap duct tape on both ends in equal amounts for weight distribution (1/2 - 3/4 inch thick around both ends). Weighted
    ends are critical to may tricks. Test the weight distribution by balancing the center on a finger.
! Cut 1/2" wide by 3" long strips in the felt or material rectangles into as shown below. Do not cut all the way through.
    The material rectangle must stay in one part. Using pinking shears makes the ends look more decorative.
! Stack the 3 strips and wrap non stripped end of the felt or material with permanent fabric adhesive around the duct tape
    so that the strips flap in a flowery display.
For the hand sticks
! Alternate colored and rubber tapes around 2/3 of smaller dowels in candy cane fashion.
! Wrap Extra rubber tape around the end and at end of candy cane design.
! For the other 1/3 of hand stick, cover candy cane style with your choice of colored tape.
! Wrap a couple of extra times around the end.
          For instructions on using these juggling sticks - do a Google search on learning Chinese juggling sticks.

    Only the ends of the paper will show)
! Trace around lid on felt with black marker.
! Cut out the circle you traced.
! Fold felt in half and crease by pushing down with finger.
! Open felt.

    both ends. (see #1)
! Immediately fold the felt over and press with fingers until glue sets.
! Push the felt in the middle of the folded area (see #2) to make the felt puff up.
! Then add some glue in the middle where the felt will meet when pushed together.
! Push the ends toward each other and hold until glue sets.

                  work very well)
                  Fine permanent markers
Directions:
1) Drill holes as indicated. The slide hole was drilled by drilling 2 - 7/16” holes on ½” centers
    to form an oval. Either a single 7/16” hole with a round file to make the oval or a single
    9/16” hole can be used.
2) Sand and paint the slide white. Usually two coats are needed. 3) With the sharp knife, carve the flame for the top of the
    candle. The flame should be about 1/4” tall.
3) Paint the candle. The original slide used blue for the candle stick, and a yellow base coat with red accents for the flame.
4) Younger scouts can use red and yellow chenille for the flame and a blue construction paper tube for the candle.
5) The decorations can be drawn on with permanent markers using the maker’s imagination as a guide.

Jingle Bell Chow Mein
You will need 2 shallow bowls, several jingle bells (about the size of a marble) and 2 full length pencils with erasers on them.
To play the game, place the bells in one bowl. The player uses the 2 pencils as chopsticks. With the eraser end down, the
player tries to transfer as many bells as he can from one bowl to the other. He can use only one hand. If only a couple of
players are used, set a given amount of time. When using teams, the team to get all the bells in the bowl first wins .... with
each boy taking his turn to transfer all bells into the other bowl and the next boy transferring them back into the first bowl ...
and so on.

Chinese Wrestling
Divide players into pairs and match them 2 at a time. Each wresfier stands on one leg (his left), the other leg being stretched
forward, and fold his arms across his chest. Each wrestler hops forward and tries to unbalance his opponent with his right leg.
No kicking or charging is allowed. A winner is declared when a boy forces the other to touch his right foot to the ground. The
game should be played on a grassy lawn, soft ground or carpet.

Tsoo! Tsoo!
One player is blindfolded. The remaining players are chickens. The blindfolded player says, “Tsoo! Tsoo!”. The chicken runs
up and tries to touch him without being caught. The player caught becomes the blindman.

Chase Draw
Pin paper on the back of each boy. Have the boys line up one behind the other. As the boys try to draw a picture on the back
of the boy in front, they have to keep walking and following the leader.
.................................................................................................................... From the Heart of America Council Pow Wow book

Chinese Puzzle
Have the den form a circle. Each boy reaches across the circle and grabs the hands of two other boys. Do not hold hands
with the boys right next to you. On signal, the boys have to unravel the tangle without letting go of each others' hands.

Catch the Dragon's Tail (Taiwan)
The Cubs line up in a single line formation with both hands on the shoulders of the person in front of him. Until the signal
"Go" is given, the dragon must be in a straight line. The starter begins the countdown: "EM" (=1) "ER" (=2) "SAN" (=3)
"KO" (=Go). On the signal of Go, the head runs toward the tail and tries to catch the last man. The whole dragon body must
remain unbroken. If anyone lets go, the dragon's body is broken and the dragon dies. A new dragon must be formed. It the
head player touches the tail, he may continue to be the head. If the body breaks before he touches the tail, the head becomes
the tail and the next in line becomes the head and so on, until each has a turn at being the "fiery head" or the "lashing tail."

Chinese Tag
This is played like regular tag except that the one who is tagged must place his right hand on the spot where he has been
touched, whether it is his arm, chest, back or ankle. In this position he must chase the other players until he has tagged one of
them.

Chopstick Relay
Cubs are in teams, each team having a balloon and a pair of long slender sticks (real chopsticks are preferable). The first
player on each team runs to the finish line with the balloon between the long, slender sticks, turns and comes back. He gives
the sticks and balloon to the next player, and so on until all have run.

Hash Kyoso
To play Hashi Kyoso (hah-shee kyoh-soh) you will need a cup for each player, hashi (chopsticks), and something to pick up,
like peanuts or marshmallows. The idea is to have a contest to see who can get all the marshmallows out of the cup first by
getting one out at a time using only the hashi. (No spearing is allowed.)

Jumping Fox (China)
A small stick, called the fox, is sharpened at both ends. A longer stick is necessary for each player. A two-foot square is
drawn to represent the city. The fox is place about 3 yards away from the city. The object of the game is to make the fox
jump into the city by striking it with the long stick. The number of strikes allowed each player varies with the distance from
the city at which the fox is placed. The player who gets the fox in the city with the least number of strokes wins.

Cubmaster Minute
This is a Chinese folk tale that has a valuable lesson for all of us. It goes like this …
An old man died and arrived at the gates of Heaven. He was told that he could choose between spending eternity in Heaven or in
Hell. The old man said that he would like to look at each of them before deciding, so he was taken on a journey to Hell.
When he arrived, he was surprised to see a great banquet hall, filled with tables loaded with food. There was meat and fish,
vegetables of every kind, rice and noodles and soups. There were plates and plates of sweets for dessert. But all around the
room, the people were unhappy. Every single one of them was holding chopsticks that were three feet long. Because they were
so long, the people could not eat with them - the chopsticks would not reach their mouths. "This is surely what Hell is like," said
the old man.
Next, he was taken to Heaven. When he entered the gates, he saw a scene just like the one in Hell - a great banquet hall filled
with food. All of the people also had chopsticks that were three feet long, but here they were happy. Why? Because they used
their long chopsticks to feed each other, rather than themselves.
The moral of this story is simple. Help other people and you will be happy. But worry only about yourself, and you will be
miserable forever.

Thanks
Personnel needed: 7 Cub Scouts
Setting: Cub Scouts line up across the room holding large cards which they turn over after speaking their lines to show the
audience letters spelling the word “THANKS” (appropriate any time of year)
1st Cub: Tonight we’ve tried to bring to you
2nd Cub: Happiness by sharing our accomplishments
3rd Cub: And once again, it’s time for our meeting to end.
4th Cub: Now we want to remind you to be thankful
5th Cub: Keeping in mind all our blessings so dear
6th Cub: So let us give thanks
7th Cub: Let’s all bow our heads in silent prayer for the blessings given to us today, as we pause to give thanks, each in his
own way. (after a few minutes of silent prayer)
1st Cub: Goodnight and Thanks
Lantern Closing
Cubmaster: The Festival of Lanterns takes place on the last day of celebrations for the Chinese New Year. There are many
legends about how this festival originated. The festivities begin on the 15th day of the New Year, when the first full moon of
the New Year also occurs. The festival ushers in the increasing light and warmth of the sun after the winter’s cold into the
New Year.
Cub Scout #1: According to a Chinese tradition, at the start of a New Year, when there is a bright full moon in the sky, the
presence of colorful lanterns hung out will make people cheerful.
Cub Scout #2: We can be cheerful.
Cub Scout #3: As people we can be like those lanterns and give off light.
Cub Scout #4: Like the Chinese lanterns, let us be warm and welcoming in our friendships...
Cub Scout #5: Let us cheerfully give light...
Cub Scout #6: The light of friendliness...
Cub Scout #7: The light of kindness...
Cub Scout #8: And the light of understanding.

Cubmaster Minute - Everything Has Beauty
Confucius, the great Chinese philosopher, once said: “Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.” As you go back to
your families, your homes, and your schools, look for beauty and good things in everything and everyone that you meet. Give
goodwill as a Cub Scout should, and be a friend to everyone.

Scholar
Have the boys list what they consider the best and worst things in their school. Arrange to give
these lists to the principal or a school board member. Invite them to a den meeting to talk with the
boys. Important to the participants in such a meeting is a feeling of trust and friendship. Allow the
meeting to have an informal setting.
After respectfully introducing the guest, let it become an informal rap session. A few cookies and punch served by the denner
has worked wonders in the past. Now is the opportunity for the leader to blend into the woodwork and enjoy observing. Do
not become concerned with a lack of participation on the boys' part. If the guest is someone concerned with the boys of this
age group, he or she will draw them in.
A little more informal would be a meeting at school between the boy and a teacher. Have the boy list questions and set up

Sunscreen Experiment
You will need: Plastic wrap, scissors, photosensitive paper (e.g. Sunprint, available at toy or hobby stores); tape; sunscreens
with different SPF numbers.
1. Cover the photosensitive paper with plastic wrap slightly larger in size and if necessary tape the wrap in place. Don’t
     expose the photosensitive paper to bright light yet.
2. Paint on top of the wrap with different sunscreens. Label the SPF number of each sunscreen.
3. Place the photosensitive paper in bright sunlight. Leave in the sun for the specified duration of time.
WHAT HAPPENED
The areas where there was no sunscreen became lighter colored, while the area covered with sunscreen did not change color
as much. The greater the SPF, the less color change. The ultraviolet rays from the sun caused the chemicals in the paper to
react. Sunscreen contains chemicals that do not allow the ultraviolet rays to get through. The higher the SPF number, the more
protection you will get from the ultraviolet rays. Don’t forget your sunscreen when you play in the bright sunlight. Be
prepared.

Seven Ways to Improve Your Grade
1.   Learn to listen--Concentrate on the speaker. You may miss important facts if you’re not paying attention.
2.   Develop good study habits--Have a study place away from distractions. Have supplies handy. Do your homework at the
     same time everyday so it becomes a habit.
3.   Use the right reading technique--Slow careful reading is necessary when you must understand and remember.
4.   Improve your vocabulary--Look up a word you don’t know. Write it down. Note spelling, pronunciation and meaning.
5.   Sharpen your writing skills--Organize your thoughts. Make sure your handwriting is neat. Double check spelling and
     punctuation.
6.   Learn how to take tests--Study for a test ahead of time. DO NOT CRAM. Read all the directions and make sure you
     understand them. If there is an answer you don’t know, skip it and come back to it later. Double check your work for
     careless errors before you hand it in.
7.   Develop a positive attitude--This is most important. You are what you think you are. Think you are going to pass and you
     probably will. When you really want something at school and you are willing to work for it, your teacher is the best
     person to help you.

Engineer
Objective
• To introduce WEBELOS Scouts to a variety of engineering careers.
• To give the WEBELOS Scouts some insight into the kinds of problems engineers solve.
Keep in mind that an engineer's job is to apply the laws of physics and chemistry to solve a variety of
problems in construction, manufacturing, and other areas.

Places to go
•    Visit a construction site with a contractor. Ask him to explain the use of blue prints and the order of construction.
•    Visit the County water works, TV or radio station.
•     Arrange for boys to visit an engineer or surveyor in a municipal county office. Plan for the boys to look through the
       surveyor's manual and read a rod.
Den Activities
•    Have someone explain how to read topographic maps.
•     Make a block and tackle. Be sure to explain its purpose.
•      Have boys collect pictures of bridges and note the differences in construction
•       Make catapults and demonstrate them at pack meeting, shooting candies or marshmallows into the audience for distance.
•        Invite a civil, electrical, mechanical or chemical engineer to the meeting to discuss his/her occupation.

Skit

Measurement Problem - It takes all kinds.
Need: 3 scouts (2 older scouts and 1 Cub Scout). (Two Scouts come on stage carrying a long pole. They prop it up, then stand
back and look at it.)
Scout 1: Now, there are several ways we can figure out the height of this pole. How do you want to start?
(The Scouts unsuccessfully try various methods of estimation to calculate the height of the pole. The conversation goes
something like....)
Scout 1: According to my calculations, that pole is about 2 m high.
Scout 2: There's no way. It has got to be shorter than that. Just look at it. (This kind of exchange repeats several times as the
Scouts obviously become more and more exasperated. A Cub strolls onto the stage.)
Cub: Hi! (he watches a bit) What are you guys trying to do?
Scout 2: We're trying to measure the exact height of this pole.
Scout 1: We haven't had too much luck, yet, but we'll get it.
Cub: Why don't you just lay the pole on the ground and measure its length?
Scout 1: (scornfully) Cubs!
Scout 2: I'll say. (To the Cub) Didn't you hear right? We want to know how tall the pole is - not how long it is

Game

Compass Points
This game will be found excellent practice in learning the points of the compass.
Eight staves are arranged in star fashion on the ground all radiating from the center. One staff should point due North. One
Scout now takes up his position at the outer end of each staff, and represents one of the eight principal points of the
compass. The Scoutmaster now calls out any two points, such as SE and N., and the two Scouts concerned must immediately
change places. Any one moving out of place without his point being named, or moving to a wrong place or even hesitating,
should lose a mark. When changing places, Scouts must not cross the staves, but must go outside the circle of players. when
three marks have been lost the Scout should fall out. As the game goes on blank spaces will occur.
These will make it slightly more difficult for the remaining boys. To make the game more difficult sixteen points may be used
instead of eight. When played indoors the lines of the compass may be drawn in chalk on the floor.

Ceremony
Suggested Props: Clip-on tie with wire added so it will bend up.
Presentation: Present boy with the "Dilbert" award and have him wear it during the meeting.

Crafts
The Ringer
The Ringer is a successful flying machine even though it is without wings, a tail or stabilizer. Construct and test this unique
flying structure.
Materials: 1 straw, 1 sheet of paper, Transparent tape
1. Cut two paper strips: 5 in x 1/2 in and 7 in x 3/4 in.
2. Tape the ends of the paper to form two loops.
3. Tape the loops to the ends of the straw.
4. Conduct test flights of the aircraft.
5. Make a variety of alterations to the aircraft, such as changing the size of the loop, the length of the straw, etc.
6. Record the length of flight, direction of flight, etc. for each design variation.
7. Determine the best design for accurate, long distance flight.
