A week before this activity let cubs choose a slip of paper with the name of the commonwealth country they have to find out about, which is drawn from a bag. Email out instructions on on what the cubs need to do and include them to find out about scouting in that country also. On the day of the activity find out how much the young people know already about CommonWealth Countries. Progress on to a game about commonwealth countries then ask the young people to set up and present the work they have found about the country they chose and about scouting in that country. Next the Commonweath word search can be completed by everyone.
