This Scout Way is designed for a new Troop or for a Flag Review in an established Troop. It will be a failure unless the Scouts study Handbook for Boys in advance and unless they are told exactly which paragraphs to study. Suggest that after Scouts have studied, they ask their parents to take the Handbook and quiz them.

The paragraph following is copied from the Handbook for Boys. The reader substitutes the word "blank" every time he comes to a word or figure printed in bold face capitals. That's the signal for the members of each team to huddle together and decide what to write on the card provided them. At the end of the reading tell the correct answers and let the Scouts correct their own cards. The team which has the most correct answers wins.

"As their troubles with England increased, the COLONIES felt they needed a FLAG of their own. Two years after the BOSTON TEA PARTY, BENJAMIN FRANKLIN was made Chairman of the Committee that designed a flag of THIRTEEN red and white STRIPES with a Union composed of the crosses of Saint George and Saint Andrew. This flag was first unfurled over WASHINGTON'S headquarters in BOSTON on January 2, 1776. It was called the GRAND UNION FLAG.


If time permits read additional paragraphs.

Any time you see fit, read to your Scouts from their Handbook, but don't just read, make it a Scout way similar to the one suggested in "Tenderfoot Review Questions."
