This meeting plan completes the requirements for the Webelos Citizen activity badge which were started in Webelos Citizen Activity Badge Den Meeting Plan Part 1.
The first meeting focused on the flag requirements. At this meeting, we will do the requirements which relate to government and personal citizenship.
To make it more fun, we will play a game at the end to reinforce some of the things which they learned. The meeting plan allots 15 minutes for the game, but you might have to adjust this if the rest of the meeting takes more or less time than you anticipated. Also, if you didn’t complete the flag requirements at the first meeting, you can continue working on those and omit the game.
This meeting completes some of the requirements for the Citizenship belt loop. They will need to record their progress doing chores at home. They must also participate in some sort of service project. Our Pack participates in Scouting for Food every November, so we will count that. Or they can count a project they did with their family or at school.
