BSA Tiger Den Meeting 12 – Go See It: Transportation
Preparation and Before the Meeting
Most of the preparation for this meeting involves deciding where you want to go and making the arrangements.
If you are meeting at the station, you might have difficulty coming up with an appropriate gathering activity. It will have to be simple. A crossword puzzle or word search would work well.
Keep the opening simple. If the station has a flag pole, that is a perfect place to say the Pledge of Allegiance.
Keep business to a minimum.
I suggest you review travel safety with the Tiger Cubs. Then go over how to read a schedule.
If possible take a ride on the transportation system. When LC’s den did this, they went for a ride on our local light rail system. Many of them had never ridden on it before and it was a great adventure for them. They just rode a little way and then made the return trip.
Closing in a public place should be simple. You can even close with the Cub Scout motto:
Do your best.
After the Meeting
You shouldn’t have any clean up for this meeting. But don’t forget to talk to the other parents and recruit help for the next meeting.
