While working on the Good Knights adventure, Tiger Cub Scouts can learn about the Scout Law, create a code of conduct, learn how to work together, use recycled items to build a castle, or take part in a service project. Here are a few ideas to help you with this achievement.
A den code of conduct is a good idea for this age. Check out these guidelines for respectful listening for some ideas and a sample code of conduct.
Making the castle from recycled materials will be fun for this age group also. To add a STEM component, try making some miniature catapults to fling marshmallows or other small objects at the castle. Check the book Mini-Weapons of Mass Destruction or craft stick catapults for some ideas.
And don’t forget the service aspect of this adventure. See these service project ideas for younger Scouts for some age appropriate ideas.

Tiger Elective Adventure: Good Knights
Click to open the requirements for Good Knights
Complete requirements 1 and 2 plus at least two others.
1. With your den or with your parent, guardian, or other caring adult, say the Scout Law. Explain to your den one of the 12 points of the Law and why you think a knight would have the same behavior
2. If you have not already done so, make a code of conduct with your den that will describe how each person should act when you are all together. If your den has a code of conduct, discuss with your den the updates it might need. Vote on which actions should go in your den code of conduct.
3. Create a den shield and a personal shield.
4. Using recycled materials, design and build a small castle to display at the pack meeting.
5. Think of one physical challenge that could be part of an obstacle course. Then help your den design a Tiger knight obstacle course. Participate in the course.
6. Show your understanding of knights’ service to others by participating in a service project in your community.
