Make pinhole planetariums to fulfill Cub Scout Bear Elective 1b. This project involves hammers, nails, and flashlights, so it should be a hit with the Cub Scouts. Includes patterns for the pinholes.
Space Cub Scout Theme
The idea of this game is for each player to “use the force” to keep a balloon on a pool noodle light saber.
The idea of this game is to put the flying saucer (a Frisbee) in its space dock (a box). This is a good game for indoors or out.
A while back, I posted the Fast Food Song. This week, I have a Star Wars song with the same tune. Sure, Star Wars isn’t science, but it is science fiction and it’s fun. That’s enough reason to use it to add some pizazz to any science themed meeting.
Everyone familiar with the Star Trek series knows how much they like to beam people back and forth the transporter. Sing this song as a tribute to the series.
This makes a great snack for any space themed meeting. We used it when ZM’s den worked on Bear Elective 1 – Space. It can be a little messy, so we went outside.
One of the requirements for Bear Elective 1: Space is to locate the North Star and two constellations in the night sky. This printable aid will help find it.
Here is another Christmas cookie. These are not very sweet. ZM and LC like to sprinkle these with colored sugar before we bake them.
July 20 is Moon Day. It commemorates the day the first man walked on the lunar surface. Celebrate Moon Day with some fun space themed activities.
January 2 is Science Fiction Day. This day encourages everyone to pick up a science fiction book and immerse themselves in a new reality. Science fiction encourages us to consider that the world can be different than it is now – better or worse – and our actions will make an impact on the future. So read a book, sing a song or play a game saluting Star Wars or Star Trek. Some books, songs, and games are suggested in this article.
