Citizenship Skit Graphics.docx


(Clip Art in parenthesis by Cub Scout #)
(Cub Scout # 1 should be a Webelos or take out the words: Citizenship Activity Badge. He has his script taped to the inside of the Citizenship graphic The cubs could have Boys Life Magazines with the graphics taped to an inside page with the script on the outside of the magazine facing towards them. They could just hold their graphics as well and show at the appropriate time.)

Cub Scout #1: (Talking to the audience 5- 10 feet away from cub group.) I’m working on my Citizenship Activity Badge and my Citizenship Belt Loop. I need to know what being a good citizen means. I’m on my way to my den meeting now, maybe they know what Citizenship means. Come on (gestures for the audience to come with him and walks to the group of cubs dressed in uniform.
Cub Scout #1:Hey guys, I’m working on my Citizenship Activity Pin and Citizenship belt loop, but I need to know what being a good citizen means. Do you have any ideas?
Cub Scout #2: (Vote Sign) Take time to vote, anyone 18 and older can vote for change, change in leadership and change in laws.
Cub Scout #3: (Pay Taxes Sign) Make sure to pay your taxes.
Cub Scout #4: (Boy Scout) Run for public office or serve the community as a volunteer in organizations like Boy Scouts of America.
Cub Scout #5: (Military Symbols) Many citizens serve in the Military to protect our country.
Cub Scout #6: (Constitution)Being a good citizen means obeying the law
Cub Scout #7:. (People) Do your share for the common good.

(Cub Scout #1 walks back to the beginning scout with the vote sign, acts like he is thinking, scratches head. He will walk past each sign pausing to talk to the scout holding it. Make sure that both look towards the audience when they speak, no backs toward them. When Cub #1 gets the suggestions from the other cubs, he can nod his head like it makes sense to him.)
Cub Scout #1: Well, I can’t vote till I’m 18.
Cub Scout #2: (Ballot box) But you can vote in school elections or run for a student government office. You’ll have a say in who represents you!
Cub Scout #1: I can’t pay taxes.
Cub Scout #3: (Adding Machine) You do pay sales tax on the things that you buy, some of that goes to the state, county and city to pay for roads and other services.
Cub Scout #1: I’m not old enough to volunteer as leader for the Boy Scouts of America
Cub Scout #4: (Recycling sign) But you can be a leader in your community by recycling and picking up trash helping to “leave no trace”. You could also donate your unused toys and clothes to those who are needy.
Cub Scout #1: Well, I am definitely too young to serve in the Military
Cub Scout #5: (Soldier reading letter) But you can write letters to soldiers and tell them you appreciate their service when you see them. March in a Veteran’s day parade to honor them.
Cub Scout #1: I know I can obey the law.
Cub Scout #6: (Boy Riding Bike) Some easy ones to obey are using the cross walks instead of jay walking in the middle of the street and obeying safety rules when you ride your bike; like wearing a helmet.
Cub Scout #1: Do your share for the common good? What is that?
Cub Scout #7: (Community Involvement)It means helping out people when they need it, don’t wait to be asked. Make responsible choices and think of others first.

Cub Scout #1 (Looks at Audience) So Citizenship is a lot of little choices and actions that can make a big difference in my community. If we all practice good citizenship we can make a difference in our country and in our world. (Turns back to the cubs) Thanks guys!
