Law Awareness Badge


Cubs acquire basic knowledge about the fundamental laws governing our daily interactions. They also develop knowledge and skills to help create and maintain a "crime-safe" local community.1


  1. Talk to your six about the laws of the Wolf Cub Pack and what they mean. What rules should you have in your six so that everyone can enjoy Cubs more? What might happen if your pack or six did not have rules?
  2. Talk to one of your leaders about who makes the laws in our country and why these laws are important to us. Who is responsible for making sure our laws are followed? Who can you ask for help if you see a law being broken?
  3. For any Our of the following situations, explain to your six what the laws are and why we have them:
    • (a) Crossing private property
    • (b) Burning or damaging private property
    • (c) Traffic laws for bicycles, pedestrians and automobiles
    • (d) Littering
    • (e) Hurting other people
    • (f) Taking what doesn't belong to you
    • (g) Polluting or damaging the environment
    • (h) Drinking and driving
    • (i) Taking illegal drugs. Talk about what would happen in your neighbourhood if you didn't have these laws
  4. Talk with your parents or guardian about the following situations and decide what you would do for any four of them:
    • (a) Someone breaks into or damages your house
    • (b) Someone steals your bicycle
