BSA offers supplemental pack program ideas for each month. One theme for the December core value of Respect s a Passport to Other Lands theme.
Here is what the program helps say about this theme:
Today we recognize that people of many different nationalities live in our communities. Learning about the ways of others helps lead to understanding, which in turn leads to respect. Respect means showing regard for the worth of something or someone. This month we focus on having respect for others by learning about the customs, religions, foods, and traditions of our friends from other countries.
Cub Scouts will enjoy learning about different cultures and traditions. If you have parents or Scouts who were born or lived in other lands, they can share what they personally have experienced. Or have a party with traditions and games from other countries. Below are some other requirements and recognitions you can tie in with this theme.
