Reptiles Honor Requirements

For some staff, teaching the reptile honor to their Pathfinders may not be something that they get very excited about.  But if you are afraid of snakes it's important not to pass on to the children.  It's good for them to learn about and respect the snakes.  Remember learning about snakes provides an opportunity to replace fear and misconception with knowledge .

So here are a couple of ideas to help you teach the reptile honor.

  • Find someone else to teach the honor.
  • Get a book of coloring pages and make copies for each Pathfinder to color
  • Go on a field trip to a zoo (and even some aquariums). They have exhibits with snakes safely behind glass.
Here are several websites that can help you teach the honor.
