Weather Symbols

Setup:     Have 4 Cubs carry signs with four weather symbols - RAIN, SUNNY, SNOW and CLOUDY.

Cub 1 (RAIN):        The rain keeps us indoors, most of the time, but the rain makes the crops grow, and the flowers to bloom.  Rain is good for the earth.

Cub 2 (SNOW):     The snow and cold causes trees to go into a winter sleep.  This makes the tree rest, so that when the sun comes out and the seasons change again, the tree grows again, refreshed.

Cub 3 (SUNNY):    The sun brings us warmth, the sun along with the rain make the grass and flowers grow.  With the proper rain and sun, the fields are green with fruits and vegetables and grain. Oklahoma farmers depend on these crops for their livelihood.

Cub 4 (CLOUDY):   Clouds, when the conditions are rights, will turn into rain.  Clouds will block the rays of the hot sun during the summer heat to cool things off a little.

CUBMASTER:        Cub Scouting is a program for all seasons and weather conditions.
