Webelos #3: (unrolling large map): I think it's a long ways away.
Webelos #4: Let's learn something about China. I heard they celebrate New Year's with fireworks and parades and a variety of animals!
Webelos #1: Let's go to the library and find out some more. I'd like to know what things there are to see and visit.
Webelos #2: Do you really think we can visit?
Webelos #3: In this day and age, with computers and other ways of sharing information, we could sure learn a lot.
Webelos #4: Hey guys, let's get going and look for the gateway to the Orient.
