Be an active member of your Webelos den for at least six months since completing the fourth grade or for at least six months since becoming 10 years old.
The Cub Scout program is tied to birthday, not grade, as the ending point which is a problem because the beginning is by grade

Scoutbook signs off the second elective earned as a 4th grader as counting towards Arrow of Light. Our camp has Scouts work on AoL badges entering the 4th grade.
My Scout finishes his six months for AoL in March of his 4th grade year.
The AoL program needs to be separated fully from Webelos and make it so you must be in the 5th grade to earn it.
