  • collect relevant information by printing or saving as files

You might do this by:

  • Decide on a skill and research how you can teach someone else
  • Look up cubs in another country and find out what is in their promise and the types of games they play (also world badge item 6)
  • Find out about renewable energy sources (also environmental conservation)
  • Find out about activities you think we should do as a cub pack in the future
  • Find out about sailing or kayaking
  • Make a list of your topic and your websites in your logbook
    Use part 4 to show the research you’ve done

Part 4: Using your internet research, design a presentation and tell others about what you have found out.

You might do this by:

  • Create a slideshow about your topic – if you use powerpoint you could turn it into a video with music or record a voiceover
  • Make a video on your topic
  • Draw a poster
