Tonight Scouts talked about the different genres of literature as the foundation for their Reading merit badge work, which will be completed at their school library and at home.
After a lively discussion of favorite books, reading habits, and the benefits of life-long learning with books, the Scouts turned to the domestication of wolves and humans that enabled the thousands-years-long relationships between dogs and people. Each Scout figured out which of the 7 official types of dogs their family pet is and talked about characteristics of those breeds. They then talked about the importance of housetraining, obedience, and socialization so their dogs can be good family members.
Next week, SPL Jacob will lead the Troop through more of the Dog Care merit badge!
