First graders make up the Tiger rank in Cub Scouting. This group was the first rank to use the Character Connections in the new Cub books as part of their requirements for rank.
Note: All Tiger Cubs MUST have their adult partner for all Cub events -Den
meetings, Day Camp, Pack meetings, outings.
The Bobcat badge is earned before the Tiger Cub Rank. See Advancement section for the requirements for this badge.
Tiger Cub learns the Cub Scout motto, the Cub Scout sign, and the Cub Scout Salute he earns his Tiger Cub immediate recognition emblem Belt Totem.
The Tiger Cub Scout must complete all 15 parts of the 5 Achievements that are offered in the book to earn his Tiger Cub Badge.
Note that these activities are in three parts:
- A Family Activity
- a Den activity
- and a Go See It Outing.
As the Tiger Cub finishes achievements, he earns a totem bead. There are:
- White beads for the Family activities
- Orange beads for the Den activities
- Black beads for the Go See It activities
for a total of 15 beads (5 of each color).
The totem has 4 lanyard strands for the three colored beads and the last strand is for the Tiger Tracks (yellow circle beads bought separately). For every 10 electives he completes the Tiger is awarded 1 Tiger Track bead.
These can be worked on at the same time as the Achievements but the Tiger can’t receive the Tiger Track beads until he earns his Tiger Cub Badge.
(The adult partner approves the completion of the requirements and the book is then shown to the Den Leader who records the progress and also signs the boy's book.)
To promote uniform wearing, bringing books to Den meetings and attendance I have a Bead roll form under Sundry that you just check off the boxes.
