BSA Bear Supplemental Den Meeting Plan H – Space

BSA provides Bear den meeting ideas for den leaders on the Scouting.org website. These Cub Scout Bear den meeting plans are step by step guides to carrying out a den meeting. In addition to the basic den meeting plans, there are supplemental plans which can be used if you have additional meetings left. Today’s plan covers part of  Bear Elective 1 – Space.

If you don’t already have the BSA den meeting plans, download BSA Bear Den Meeting Supplemental Plan H to follow along with this article.

Cub Scout Bear Den Meeting Plans: Space

Preparation and Before the Meeting

For this meeting, you will be visiting a planetarium, so you will need to make arrangements beforehand. If this is not possible, then consider making pinhole planetariums instead.

Gathering

Check out my gathering activities page for ideas.

Opening

Have a flag ceremony. Say the Scout Law.

Business

Keep business short and sweet.

Activities

The den will be working on Bear Elective 1c:

Visit a planetarium.

You will also be doing the Astronomy belt loop:

  1. Set up and demonstrate how to focus a simple telescope or binoculars. (A local astronomy club may be a resource for this activity.) See How to use binoculars .
  2. Draw a diagram of our solar system–identify the planets and other objects. See Draw the Solar System (Worksheet).
  3. Explain the following terms: planet, star, solar system, galaxy, the Milky Way, black hole, red giant, white dwarf, comet, meteor, moon, asteroid, star map, and universe. See Astronomy Terms Scramble.

Still have some time? Sing The Noble Captain Kirk Song or the Star Wars Song .

Closing

Close with the Scout Oath and a closing flag ceremony.

After the meeting

The Bears should help clean up the area and put away the supplies you brought.
