Here’s How to Help Your Scout Advance!
To earn the Tiger badge, a youth must complete six required adventures with their den or family, plus one elective adventure, and complete the Cyber Chip award for their age.
First Grade – Tiger Requirements
First graders work toward the Tiger rank. The Tiger rank is earned by completing seven adventures as described below. Although participation with an adult partner is required for all Tiger awards, recognition items are for the Scouts only.
1. Complete each of the six required adventures:
- Backyard Jungle, a/k/a My Tiger Jungle a very hands-on adventure with planting something and building birdhouses.
- Games Tigers Play is all about games, sports and nutrition.
- “Tiger Circles: Duty to God” will often be an at home, because faith beliefs in Scouting are determined by the family and everyone’s duty is different.
- Team Tiger is all about service and “doing your share”.
- Tiger Bites is an adventure covering food choices and preparation, manners and nutrition.
- Tigers in the Wild is all about hiking, the outdoors, nature, visiting a nature center, zoo or “other outdoor place”.
2. In addition to the six required adventures, complete at least one elective adventure of your den’s or family’s choosing.
3. With your parent, guardian, or other caring adult, complete the exercises in the pamphlet entitled How to Protect Your Children From Child Abuse: A Parent’s Guide.
4. Watch the Protect Yourself Rules video for 1st Grade, Tiger. (The video is located at https://vimeo.com/325064660 and can be watched on-line or downloaded and viewed off-line.) OR Earn the Protect Yourself Rules Preview Adventure for Tiger.
Parents/guardians or the den leader approve each requirement by signing the Scout’s handbook. Scouts receive an adventure loop on completing each adventure and, after meeting all requirements, have earned the Tiger badge.
