Answer to Martin Luther King’s speech: I HAVE A DREAM
Dream Opening
Cubmaster:
During the month of January, we honor Martin
Luther King. for the many things he did during his life
to help all of the citizens of our country.
Martin Luther King gave a speech to many people that gathered in Washington,
D.C. In that speech he talked about a dream that he had. He had a dream or a
wish that one day his children would not be judged by the color of their skin, but
by the content of their character. Let me say that again. He wished that one day
his children would not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of
their character.
What do you think that means? [Cub Scouts may have some really good answers
to this question. Guide them to realize that it is a strong character that counts and
that we all need to respect each other and work together to help us reach Martin
Luther King’s dream.]
Answers from Cub Scouts
Cubmaster:
Together, let’s say the Cub Scout Promise and then the Pledge of Allegiance.
Core Values:
Respect, Responsibility, Positive Attitude
We’re All Friends Puppets
Materials:
1 jumbo craft stick per Cub Scout
1 regular sized craft stick per Cub Scout
Construction paper (for cutting out clothing – see templates)
Scissors
Yarn – assorted colors (for hair)
Wiggle eyes – 7mm size (2 per Cub Scout)
Glue
Markers – black or brown (for drawing mouth and nose)
Watercolor paints (for painting craft sticks)
Paintbrushes
Cups (for holding water for painting)
Water (for painting)
Shirt templates (copied on cardstock)
Pants templates (copied on cardstock)
Instructions:
1. If desired, Cub Scouts can paint their craft sticks (1 jumbo stick and 1 regular craft stick) to resemble
whatever skin color they would like their puppet to have. Set aside to let the sticks dry.
2. Using the templates (cut out templates if needed to use for shirts and pants), cut out a shirt and pants
(a rectangle) out of construction paper.
3. Once the craft sticks are dry from painting, glue 2 wiggle eyes near the top of one end of the jumbo
craft stick (this side will be the front of your puppet).
4. Using glue and yarn, glue hair just above the wiggle eyes on the jumbo craft stick.
5. Glue the pants (rectangle) at the bottom of the jumbo craft stick.
6. Glue the shirt above the pants onto the jumbo craft stick.
7. Turn the jumbo stick over and glue the regular craft stick onto the back of the jumbo craft stick. Make
sure to align the regular craft stick so it becomes the arms going through the sleeves of the shirt that
was just glued.
8. Using a black or brown marker, add a nose and a mouth to the face of your friend puppet.
Cub Scouts in a Contest!
Materials:
Masking tape for lines (if needed)
Cub Scouts need to pair up with Cub Scouts that are about the same size in height
to do the following two-person contests.
These seven contests could be grouped into stations and Cub
Scout pairs could go from station to station completing the
contests as they go. You could also have the pairs do all these
contests together.
1. One-Person Pull Over Line
Face your friend – 3 feet away from him. Grasp his wrists and try to
pull him across the goal line 10 feet behind you. Only pulling is
allowed.
2. Seated Back-to-Back Push
Sit back-to-back. Fold your arms across your chest. Using your
feet on the floor, try to push your friend over a line. Don’t
push or butt with your head.
3. Foot Push
Sit facing your friend. Have the soles of your feet touching with
your knees bent. Try to push your friend out of a circle or over a
line. Feet must always be touching feet. Push on the floor with
your hands.
4. One-Legged Hand Wrestle
Hold your left ankle with your left hand. Take your friend’s right hand.
On the word “Go,” try to get him to let go of his foot or lose his
balance.
5. Stand Up Back-to-Back Push
Stand back-to-back with your elbows linked. Try to push your
friend across a line 10 feet away. Only pushing is allowed.
6. Hand Wrestle
Grasp your friend’s right hand. Stand
with the outside of your right foot braced against his. Spread
your feet so that you are well balanced. On the signal “Go,”
try to throw your friend off balance. The first player to move
a foot or touch the ground with a hand loses this contest.
7. Elbow Wrestle
Lie on your stomach, facing your friend (who is lying on his stomach). Place
your right elbow on the floor and clasp your friend’s right hand. Try to
force his hand to the floor at the command “Go.” Elbows must not leave
the floor. Try it with left hands.
