BSA has a Cub Scout pack meeting plan called Hometown Heroes. The Hometown Heroes meeting plan features ideas for the value of cooperation – games, group activities, songs, and more to help kids learn to cooperate.
For more ideas for use with this program theme, see my Hometown Heroes Cub Scout Theme page.
Here is how the BSA plan suggests tying together this theme with the value of cooperation :
Hometown heroes are those who see a need, bring others together to cooperate in achieving a common goal, and solve problems to keep us safe in our community by working together as a team. Firefighters, police officers, members of the military, and other leaders cooperate to make our lives better. Our founding fathers represented different colonies but joined together to create the United States of America. Our space program combined the efforts of the government, the military, and private business to explore our universe and provide innovative ideas for our daily lives.
