Two years ago, our pack started a once a month
litter pickup at the elementary school in our neighborhood. The
scouts dress in uniform the first Monday of each month and under
supervision clean the parking lot and surrounding area. Great
service project. We are expanding it this year to the block around
the American Legion post which sponsors our unit.
Lew Gardner, worked with several generations of Boy Scouts, observed that "boys have two muscles to sit on, and 1.000 to wiggle with!" They have a very low tolerance & attention span for dull facts; they want to turn on, to get into action, they'll make it. They are not bad…just bored. Make learning into doing. Behavior problems hardly occur when boys are busy hammering, making skits or playing a game. At the same time, they do not realize that they are also learning.
