Ask the Cub Scouts to draw a plan of
their bedroom, showing where they keep all of their clothes, games,
and toys. Mark on it any TV set, stereo or computers they have.
Try to imagine the bedroom of a Ugandan
child. Discuss the differences between what Ugandan children may have
and what we have. Discuss how many of the belongings are essential.
Is there a time when they live happily with fewer belongings such
as at camp or on family holidays?
Make pots from modelling clay and decorate
them using string and so on.
There are many towns in Uganda - not
just mud hut villages. Many towns have names beginning with the letter
K. Some are hidden in the word-search overleaf. See how many the Cub
Scouts can find.
Name four corners of your hall - Kampala,
Mbale, Jinja and Entebbe. When the Leader calls out one of the towns
the Cubs run to the appropriate corner. If Leader calls Lake Kyoga
the Cubs must lie on their stomach and pretend to swim. Other commands
could be inspired by other Ugandan towns.
