United States Flag Cootie Catcher or Fortune Teller
Barb Kish, an AOL Den Leader from Pack 6410 in Woodstock, GA sent in this template and instructions for making a cootie catcher to help Cub Scouts learn the history of the US flag:
I wanted a fun way to teach my AOL scouts Building a Better World #1 ( Explain the history of the United States flag.) by having them play with a Cootie Catcher, but all I could find were ones you had to pay for. As you know we have very little money in scouts so I made my own.
A cootie catcher, also called a fortune teller, is an orgami construct which can be used to ask and answer questions. Barb sent me the template and instructions below for making the cootie catcher. Just print it out and follow the directions she provided. Thanks for this History of the US Flag Cootie Catcher, Barb!

One theme for teaching citizenship is the Fifty Great States theme. State capitals bingo would be a fun game or gathering activity to go with this theme. You can play this game with states or capitals on the bingo cards or the call cards. You can choose which combination of bingo cards and call cards you would like to use.
Citizenship Football Game is a fun way to help Webelos and Scouts BSA work on citizenship requirements.
Possibly Based On?
This cootie catcher might have been based on this one. However that link goes to a paid resource, so you will not be able to download it for free like the one Barb sent in.
