Bear Cub Scout Achievement 18 “Jot it down”
This achievement is about writing and record keeping. Each Cub Scouts needs to complete requirement 18H plus four others to pass off this achievement. We chose the following.
18A – “Make a list of the things you want to do today. Check them off when you have done them.”
I had our boys make a list of things they needed to do tomorrow and take it home with them.
18B – “Write two letters to relatives or friends.”
I brought some blank cards so they could write a letter to a relative or friend (who didn’t live in our neighborhood).
18C – “Keep a daily record of your activities for 2 weeks.”
I created a 2 week daily record that they could simple fill out. [pdf] Print out a copy for each boy to take home.
18E – “Write a thank-you note.”
I asked each boy to write a thank you note to a relative, teacher, or friend.
18H – We discussed honesty in our record keeping as it is outlined in the Cub Scout Bear Book (page 145).
