CRE8 Week Seven: Global activities for Beavers and Cubs

Well done Beavers and Cubs we have reached week seven!! This week we are focusing on Global. 

The Scouts are proud to support the Global Goals that children, adults, and governments all over the world are aiming to achieve. Together, we can make the world a better place, and it all starts with you.

This week's main activity is the Sustainable Development Goals.

Watch the video: 

  • Draw a single comic frame image showing themselves using their superpower. Add into a speech bubble ideas on how you can help achieve the Global Goals.

  • Draw a happy face and then write down or draw anything you think will make the world a better place for people to live in.

  • Pick a goal that is most important to you and design your own logo or poster promoting the goal.

  • Pick a goal and research what it means for people in your family. Try to think of 5 steps they can take to work towards this goal.
