    2. Sing or recite the words of “Texas, Our Texas”.
  3. STATE HISTORY:
    1. Draw the first six flags of Texas. Tell something important that happened when Texas was under each flag.
    2. Name a famous Texan. Tell why the person is famous, and what you like or dislike about him or her.
    3. Visit an historic place in Texas. Tell about the important events which happened there.
  4. STATE CULTURE:

Texas-BadgeIMPORTANT: If you have already done any of these requirements for another Cub Scout or Webelos Scout award, you must do something different for the Texas Badge. For example, if you visited an historical place for another Cub Scout or Webelos Scout award, you should visit a different historical place for the Texas Badge.
