Equipment: A single twig and a bundle of twigs; American Flag
Begin by posting the colors at the head of the group and follow with this statement: "Scouters, I hold in my hand several twigs. You can see that one twig alone is easy to break (demonstrate by breaking a single twig in two), but when I put several twigs together, they are almost impossible to break (make an unsuccessful effort to break the bundle of twigs). There is strength in numbers. As a nation of people working together to preserve our freedom and heritage, we can keep our country strong.
Will you join me in the Pledge of Allegiance to our flag?
