The US flag is a symbol of our country. When we honor it, when honor all of those who have protected our freedom through the years, especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our liberty. The flag also helps us focus on our national unity. We might not agree on everything, but we recognize that there are core principles which bring us all together.
Your Vote Counts
How to Raise an American: 1776 Fun and Easy Tools, Tips, and Activities to Help Your Child Love This Country is a book for adults interested in instilling citizenship and a love of our nation in kids.
BSA has a Cub Scout pack meeting plan called Your Vote Counts. The Your Vote Counts meeting plan features ideas for the value of citizenship – games, group activities, songs, and more.
You need to highlight the flag during this ceremony. Put a spotlight on it or have two scouts hold it up, or something like that.
The purpose of the game is to reinforce the ideas which are discussed in the Webelos Citizen activity badge.
