paper and see how many American people, places, and things they can list from A

the map of the United States so that you have one for each Cub Scout or one for
each person at the pack meeting. People
should write the name of each state and it’s capital in the space for the
state (or as close as possible to small states, with an arrow pointing to the
appropriate state). After the
meeting opens, reveal a large U.S. map for everyone to check answers.
Give a prize to all who correctly identified the states and capitals.
Suggest that they write in any additional information they know, such
as the state bird, flower, tree, song, or nickname.
People write their names on the papers and turn them in.
A leader or other adult uses a list, an encyclopedia, or other reference
book about the United States to check the papers.
Give a prize to the one with most correct answers.

a hike with your Cubs through your neighborhood, yard, or local park and ask
them to try to find something that begins with a letter of the alphabet--A, B,

as a scavenger hunt too. Remind
your Cubs that working together as a team provides the best outcome.
