Tiger Cubs learn about news
The best way to learn about writing a news story might be to write one.
A Tiger Cub group of scouts from Pack 320, Mt. Baker Council, visited the Edmonds Beacon offices recently to learn more about how a newspaper is made.
The five scouts, Nathan Sabol, Brayden Keenan, Joel Brannon, Bryan Hansen and Geno Sconzo, learned about what goes into making a news story. They then helped write this story about their visit.
In addition to learning about newspapers, the visit helps the scouts in preparation for their communications merit badge.
“We wanted to come learn about newspapers; it sounded fun,” Brayden Keenan said.
“We’re learning how to communicate better,” Joel Brannon said.
This wasn’t the first tour the scouts have taken.
“We’ve gone on two other tours besides this one,” Nathan Sabol said.
“We went to the Edmonds Historical Museum,” Geno Sconzo said. “They had trains and a jail.”
“My favorite part was the train and boat set,” Joel Brannan said. “They also had a log factory there.”
