This activity helps the Scouts analyse their feelings and reactions to things, and gives them the chance to offer thanks.
A laptop, newspapers, television, paper, pens, scissors, glue, felt-tip pens.
1. Arrange for Scouts to watch some news programmes, possibly
2. As they watch each bulletin reflect upon whether they want to:
• say ‘Wow!’
• say ‘thank you’
• say/feel sorry
• ask ‘why?’
• give any other reaction
Collect newspapers so that Scouts (in groups) can work cutting out and arranging headlines under the headings above. Display the results and allow time for each group to explain their reasoning.
