Chapter07 WCLH Eng 09 qxd 4 30 09 9 51 AM Page 2, Activity Areas also cover many important social and family issues that confront Cubs Take time to dis. cuss these issues with your Cubs Ask them for ideas how to bring these issues into the program in a. new and interesting way Though most requirements are worded to promote or guide Cubs into hands. on activity the requirements do not restrict you from planning other exciting program activities for. the Cubs to gain experience and knowledge,How is an Activity Area structured. Each Activity Area has a stated purpose and goal These tell you what the Activity Area is designed to. accomplish and the long term benefits we hope the Cubs will receive from experiencing the activities. The actual requirements then form objectives the hands on tangible activities in which you can. measure the degree of interest and success of a particular Activity Area based program. Remember the Activity Area purpose goals and requirements have been designed to meet the devel. opmental needs and interests of typical 8 to 10 year olds Three levels of skill development and chal. lenge exist within the Activity Area Based on Cub interest and ability you can guide the youth to an. appropriate starting place for Activity Area work The three levels are. A star provides a basic introduction to an Activity Area for those Cubs with very little or no previous. experience in the activities Star requirements include a broad range of interests to stimulate Cub. curiosity to learn more Star requirements often act as stepping stones toward specific badges. A badge provides further opportunity to explore an Activity Area interest in greater detail it requires. Cubs to have an intermediate level of skill and knowledge Some badges relate to others Therefore. working on a number of badges in an Activity Area can provide a much broader and in depth learning. experience, An award is designed to give more focus and challenge to Cubs who are especially keen to explore a. particular Activity Area Working on an award requires greater cumulative knowledge skill and. commitment to complete Some awards provide an opportunity for older Cubs to teach younger. Cubs new skills This strengthens early leadership skills Most awards also prepare Cubs for the. transition to Scouts through more advanced Cub program work These activity awards take the. form of square badges, Integration of Cub Activity Awards with Scout Badges. Why do we tie the Cub activity awards to Scout activity badges. It s to attract encourage and motivate Cubs to advance into Scouts Cubs earn these awards while in. the pack and transfer them to the Scout sash when they are invested into Scouts The award require. ments ensure that new Scouts have some basic troop skills. Chapter07 WCLH Eng 09 qxd 4 30 09 9 51 AM Page 3,Why let Cubs transfer awards to the Scout sash.
Often Cubs experience anxiety and disappointment with having to start over with an empty sash By. encouraging youth to earn pre Scout badges many will exhibit a stronger interest to move up to. Scouts this might help blend the sections, On investiture into Scouts any green bordered Cub activity awards the child has earned are trans. ferred to the Scout sash Upon earning the Voyageur level of the corresponding Scout activity badge. the Cub activity award is removed and replaced by the activity badge. This makes a very tangible link from Cubs to Scouts It provides a clear progressive and integrated. learning path for the youth to follow,The chart below explains this process further. Scout Badge Voyageur Level Cub Badge, Outdoor Skills Remove any or all Canadian Camper Award. Canadian Heritage Trails Award,Canadian Wilderness Award. Personal Development Remove any or all Canadian Arts Award. Canadian Healthy Living Award,Citizenship Remove World Citizen Award.
Leadership Remove Canadian Family Care Award,Emergency Preparedness Award. You may find some requirements overlap between various achievements this is because some activities. are relevant to a number of Activity Areas Cubs are not required to earn every star badge and award. in The Cub Book The opportunity to participate in a particular activity may occur in more than one. place Where requirement overlap does occur a Cub needs only to pass the requirement once. Scouting programs are not only for Cubs but also for their families Some Activity Area work can only. be completed at home At other times a Cub s parents may enquire how to help the youth work on. requirements that fall outside your program plan Encourage parents and other grown up family mem. bers to take an active interest in the program In this way home activities will reinforce things the. Cub learns at meetings As well allowing Cubs to work on Activity Area requirements outside the. meeting makes Cubbing a real family experience This outside participation will help parents appreciate. the effort you are putting into the program, If Cubs or their parents are interested in working on parts of an Activity Area at home ask them to. discuss their ideas with you first They may find that you are planning to cover certain require. ments later in your program plan or that you can easily accommodate their interests as part of. Chapter07 WCLH Eng 09 qxd 4 30 09 9 51 AM Page 4, your program planning process If you discover that the work falls outside your program help the. Cubs and parents to establish some guidelines for working on the requirements This approach will. ensure that home activities are age appropriate and follow our Do Your Best learning method. You may be able to share some ideas how to approach specific requirements and where to go for. resources with parents By working closely with them you will foster stronger support for the pack. perhaps it will open the door for these adults to assume leadership roles within the group later. Delivering the Wolf Cub Program, The Wolf Cub program offers many opportunities for Cubs. to pursue and experience a wide range of activities that. interest them Based on the programming steps discus. sion let s explore the options for creating pack programs. Themes can be just for fun or tied to a number of, Activity Area requirements A pirate theme might include.
finding a map looking for buried treasure and a host of. related events By incorporating the program elements. you create a mix of activities that make a fun variety. filled program Leaders may refer to the Activity Area. requirements either as a guide or to have Cubs earn. requirements while they participate in the theme,Activity Area Work Single Focus. Cubs might indicate a cycling interest This might lead to the entire pack working on the Cyclist. Badge together By using the program elements the resulting badge activities would be planned. and delivered to the Cubs though cycling oriented games crafts songs stories etc. Activity Area Work Multi level Focus, Cubs will often have a range of experience with some activities This can pose a programming. challenge leaders will want neither to rush inexperienced Cubs nor hold back more experienced. youth from further challenge, Camping is a good example of an activity where Cubs might have differing experience levels. Rather than have the entire pack work at the same level split the pack into three groups for. part of the meeting, New Cubs with no camping experience can work with a leader on the Green Star Cubs with some. camping experience can form another group with a leader to work on the Camping Hiking or Trailcraft. Badge The last group the most experienced Cubs perhaps getting ready to go on to Scouts next. year can work with a leader on the Canadian Camper Award. Chapter07 WCLH Eng 09 qxd 4 30 09 9 51 AM Page 5, After working in these groups for a while bring the entire pack together to review common camping.
practices e g packing clothing weather and general information Using the program elements in. each group and with the entire pack ensures that group activities do not consist solely of instructional. lectures By splitting into small skill groups Cubs have their interests met at a level appropriate to. their individual maturity and ability level, If you focus the entire pack on star requirements alone some Cubs will become frustrated and may. lose interest Discipline problems are less likely to occur when Cubs are working on activities that fas. cinate them But don t think you have to program for every single star badge and award for your Cubs. to work on Only plan activities the Cubs want to do Use the program elements to ensure activity. variety Most of all have FUN,Here are more tips to make planning easier. 1 Cubs can work on Activity Area requirements in any order. 2 Cubs can work on activities in bits and pieces For example a Cub may earn a few Blue. Star requirements and then move on to the Black or Tawny Stars before completing the Blue. 3 The only criterion for earning a requirement is to Do Your Best Cubs differ considerably in. their abilities activities that come easy to one will prove very difficult for others. 4 Let your Cubs choose activities that interest them The Activity Area scheme allows for. considerable choice so Cubs can choose enough projects within their interests and abilities. to earn recognition, 5 Allow Activity Area recognition and the completed task to be rewards in themselves Give each. Cub equal attention for his or her hard work Celebrate success whatever success means in. the Do Your Best context, 6 Because it s sometimes difficult for Cubs to appreciate the objective of a requirement give them. a fun and exciting immediate goal For example the long term objective of fire lighting is to. learn survival and self reliance skills The immediate objective is to get this fire lit a process. that fascinates all Cubs, In summary Activity Areas are designed with specific purposes goals and activities to meet the inter.
ests of Cubs while also providing an age appropriate learning method Give plenty of opportunity for. Cubs to choose what stars badges and awards interest them Incorporate these into meetings outings. and special events By encouraging Cubs to Do Your Best and using this motto as your standard for. completing various requirements you will contribute to the overall development of each child. Chapter07 WCLH Eng 09 qxd 4 30 09 9 51 AM Page 6,THE NATURAL WORLD ACTIVITY AREA. To create a feeling of care and concern for the natural world and an interest in nature study. The Natural World Activity Area has four goals, To provide practical environmental activities that explore the wonders of nature. To develop an understanding that all life requires food water shelter and space. To explore and develop an understanding of the positive and negative impacts people. have on the environment, To give ideas how to help the environment in everyday life situations. Mowgli says Look on Scouts Canada s web site www scouts ca for web links to. some of the Star Badges and Award requirements You will also find archives of. Scouting Life Magazine with helpful program ideas, The Natural World Activity Area is geared to discovering nature from the perspective of an 8 to 10. year old The Activity Area comprises the Black Star Natural World Badges and the Canadian. Wilderness Award The following briefly describes each of these levels. Black Star, The Black Star provides a variety of basic and simple introductory activities for children with only lim.
ited exposure to hands on nature educational projects Through nature hikes and visits making col. lections or other useful activities Cubs can begin to understand how nature works and their place in. the environment Early positive experiences will help children care for nature it will also provide skills. and interest enabling the Cub to further explore the variety of nature subjects found in the Natural. World Badges, These badges take a family approach they all relate to each other by providing outdoor education. experiences which develop nature awareness in Cubs The Observer Badge involves learning how to. observe recognize and interpret what Cubs see By developing a keen eye youth will begin to discover. what nature is lying all around them, The Naturalist Badge complements the Observer Badge These activities introduce. simple ecology principles such as camouflage and how plants and animals survive. the weather, The World Conservation Badge concentrates on the basic understanding. that in nature all life requires food water shelter and space to survive. These three badges Observer Naturalist and World Conservation show. how nature is like a giant spider web everything is connected A pull. or tug on one part of the web eventually affects the rest of the. web Nature is indeed our web of life,Chapter07 WCLH Eng 09 qxd 4 30 09 9 51 AM Page 7. The Gardener Badge ties nature to our need to produce food It also promotes wise land use. The Recycling Badge shows how people s lifestyles can have a profound positive and negative effect. on the web of life As well it shows Cubs how we handle our waste. While exploring various aspects of basic astronomy the Astronomer Badge also makes Cubs aware how. objects in the night sky play an important role in Canadian life e g the effect Northern Lights have. on satellite communications,Canadian Wilderness Award.
This award provides an opportunity for Cubs who are keenly interested in the natural world to focus their. attention and energies By developing necessary background skills and experience through prerequisite star. and badge work the award provides opportunities to apply this knowledge to real life issues e g. protecting land for parks and working on a conservation project By requiring the youth to teach other. Cubs about nature the award also provides leadership building opportunities This award links to the Scout. Voyageur level Outdoor Skill Award and may be transferred to the Scout sash. Let s now look at each achievement individually and see how leaders can develop and link them into. program ideas themes and other activities,Black Star Badge Links. You can find Black Star requirements in The Cub Book Since each activity is linked to. badge work it would be useful to see how the linking actually appears Black Star activities. are linked as follows,Black Star A Requirements,1 Gardener Badge. 2 Observer Badge Naturalist Badge Gardener Badge Collector Badge. 3 Gardener Badge Naturalist Badge,4 Observer Badge rock crystals. 5 World Conservation Badge Observer Badge Naturalist Badge. 6 World Conservation Badge Recycling Badge,7 Observer Badge Carpenter Badge. 8 Observer Badge Naturalist Badge World Conservation Badge Carpenter Badge. 9 Gardener Badge,10 World Conservation Badge Naturalist Badge.
