NEW Bear Cubs – Achievement Update 06-11-09

Friday, June 12th, 2009

Wolf Parents,

At the Lake Crabtree pack meeting, we completed Bear Cub achievement 5d (visit a nature center).
For last night’s meeting we worked on Bear Cub achievement 7a using plaster of Paris and a finger printing sheet from Creative Chemistry

Using the secret code provided, the scouts have to encrypt a short joke for me to decode at our next meeting.

I have attached the achievement and elective sheets I use to track each scout.

The biggest part of the year will be the Bear Den scrapbook for the year. Every den meeting, each scout will provide a sheet identifying what they did for the time between pack activities (pictures, stories, drawings, etc.). My hope is that at the end of the year, I will have a 3 inch binder full of memories.

Wolf Cub Achievement Update 05-14-09

Friday, May 15th, 2009

Wolf Parents,

First Announcement – I WAS WRONG [Elias was right] – there is sunblock rated 85-90 SPF (must feel like glue). I owe him an ice cream cone.

Second Announcement – I would like to welcome Nikolas (and his father Bryan) into the Wolf Den. Nikolas, Ronnie, and Elias are classmates together in school. Kudos to Ethan and Elias for showing him the ropes.

Be sure to get your scout ready for Bears because we will officially transition in the Bear Den next month. Last night we covered achievement 12B from the BEAR handbook.

I have a few more activities for the scouts to complete while I gather the pieces for our Crystal Radio Project. The scouts will build a small radio powered only by radio waves (Bear Elective 3). I will base our radio off of ScienceWiz’s Inventions Kit I bought at Target for $24.
ScienceWiz Crystal Radio Set

I could use your help if you know of any HAM radio operators to help me obtain:

  • A pack of Schottky diodes
  • Ceramic Earphones
  • 1 inch paper fasteners

I will check Radio Shack for the 28 gauge magnet wire and other supplies.

Here was our secret decoder

Wolf Cub Achievement Update 4-23-09

Monday, April 27th, 2009

Wolf Parents,

I brought the American Flag and a print-out of the North Carolina State Flag and we worked on completing Achievement 2 in our Wolf Handbook.  On the Pack 393 YouTube page, I put a favorite video showing how to fold the American Flag.

I could not find a good link showing how to make a paper football but maybe we can post a video one day for the Pack.

Ask your son if he can remember some facts about the flag.

We also completed Elective 1A (Secret Message).
