Passport to Other Lands Cub Scout Pack Meeting Plan

Note: There is a newer copy of this plan available from the BSA. I am posting this one here because it includes some games and activities which are not in the newer version.

The Passport to Other Lands meeting plan features ideas for the core value of respect- games, group activities, songs, and more. These focus on the value of respect.

The core value of Respect should still be the focus for the month.  Here is how the BSA plan suggests tying together this theme with the value of  Respect:

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.
