Cub Scout Archives: Bear Elective 6 - Aircraft
Cub Scouts can learn a lot about airplanes and flying.
They can fly model airplanes. They can visit airports, talk to pilots, and be passengers in commercial airplanes.
There are lots of ways to have fun with airplanes and to learn more about them.
Bear Elective 6 Requirements
- dentify five different kinds of aircraft, in flight if possible, or from models or photos.
- Ride in a commercial airplane.
- Explain how a hot air balloon works.
- Build and fly a model airplane. (You may use a kit. Every time you do this differently, it counts as a completed project.)
- Sketch and label an airplane showing the direction of forces acting on it (lift, drag, and load).
- Make a list of some of the things a helicopter can do that other kinds of airplanes can’t. Draw or cut out a picture of a helicopter and label the parts.
- Build and display a scale airplane model. You may use a kit or build it from plans.
Bear Electives and Arrow Points Arrow points can be confusing. Each part of an elective counts toward arrow points. In addition, Bears can use the requirements from any achievements they did not do as part of the Bear badge.
