Cooperation is a key element in teamwork. Great things can happen when people cooperate for a common goal. You cooperate with your parents. You cooperate with your den leader. You cooperate with your teachers. The result can be a fun time, learning new things and experiencing new adventures.
I Can’t, But WE Can
How many times have you said, “I can’t”? When you find something you cannot do, reach out to other people for help. It may be a parent, a teacher, a fellow Cub Scout, or a Cub Scout leader. A lot of things you cannot do by yourself can be accomplished with teamwork and cooperation. And when you notice a person who is struggling to do things on his own, reach out and help that person. It is much easier to get things done when you work together. It is also much more fun!
Hometown heroes are those who see a need, bring others together to cooperate in achieving a common goal, and solve problems to keep us safe in our community by working together as a team. Firefighters, police officers, members of the military, and other leaders cooperate to make our lives better. Our founding fathers represented different colonies but joined together to create the United States of America.
