Artic vs. Antarctica
Heart of America Council

At the start of the pack meeting show, divide the room into North and South poles.  Tell them during the meeting whenever you say Artic, North Pole, Antarctica or South Pole and the appropriate group is to respond. Throw these in at random as well as in ceremonies.  Vary the frequency of the random insertions.  Keep them guessing.

Artic, North Pole says (sings) – North, north to Alaska.

Antarctica, South Pole says – Brr, It’s mighty cold down here.
