Learning about and respecting other cultures is a part of Scouting. Scouts learn about the First Americans by playing some Native American games. They might be surprised by the similarities to some games they play all of the time.
Scouts who are doing a Native American themed meeting or activity can create a simple tipi model to get the idea of how these versatile dwellings are constructed. We made these at a Cub Scout training session and they were very easy.
An appropriate Cub Scout gathering activity for your den or pack will get your meeting off to a good start. This thankfulness zone gathering activity works well for Thanksgiving or the Cub Scout theme of Cub Scouts Give Thanks.
The idea of this game is to put the flying saucer (a Frisbee) in its space dock (a box). Dock Your Flying Saucer Game is a good game for indoors or out. If it is windy, it is a lot more challenging outdoors.
