4b. To keep from spreading your germs.
In this video follow along with Cub Scout Ben to see what are some best practices to keep from spreading germs, and in doing so you will complete Requirement 4b.
Show how to tie an overhand knot and a square knot.
Follow along with Mr. Tim to learn how to tie these essential knots. Grab some rope and join Tim by following along and you will complete this requirement.
While on a den or family outing, identify four different types of animals you see or explain evidence of their presence. Tell how you identified them.
Follow along with Ranger Steve at Camp Carpenter to complete this requirement. Go outside and see what you can find! Remember A Scout doesn’t need to actually see an animal. Animals can be identified by sight, sound, tufts of fur, scat, or tracks. I guess a few, such as skunk, could be identified by smell also.
