Moviemaking!

(formerly the Cinematography Badge)movie_making

“Moviemaking includes the fundamentals of producing motion pictures, including the use of effective light, accurate focus, careful composition (or arrangement), and appropriate camera movement to tell stories. In earning the badge, Scouts will also learn to develop a story and describe other pre- and post-production processes necessary for making a quality motion picture.”

Scouts are currently working on their script — sounds like a blockbuster!

Citizenship in the Community!

citizenship_in_the_communityA nation is a patchwork of communities that differ from each other and may be governed differently. But regardless of how local communities differ, they all have one point in common: In the United States, local government means self-government. Good citizens help to make decisions about their community through their elected local officials.

We begin work on this badge on March 2nd.  This badge is one of the 13 required for the Eagle Scout rank.

Also in the works … FENCING!

The Chess Merit Badge!14963875927_b7253e92d9_o

Chess develops critical thinking skills, concentration skills, and decision-making skills — all of which can help you in other areas of your life.  Besides the rules of the game, some of the things we are learning about chess include:

  • History of the game
  • Sportsmanship and etiquette
  • Strategy for opening, middle and end game
  • Scorekeeping
  • How to teach someone else to play

We are currently playing a chess tournament to practice both our strategy and our scorekeeping.
