ZM sang this My Turtle Swims Sideways song at Webelos camp and LC sang it at Scout camp and they’ve continued singing it since. This song is just humor. (This is one of the most commented upon posts on my blog!)
Nature and the Environment Troop Program Feature
Every Scout who is spending time outdoors should be familiar with the Outdoor Code. It is especially important for Webelos, Scouts BSA, and Venturers who are out camping regularly.
This puzzle contains 19 words and definitions related to environmental science. This vocabulary is specifically needed for the Environmental Science merit badge, but it is also appropriate for any topic related to conservation.
The Nature and Environment theme focuses on plants, wildlife, and how we interact with nature. The program feature includes some general information and some more specific ideas for meetings:
To earn the Plants and Wildlife elective for the Venturing Ranger award, Venturers must learn about the balance of nature, study specific species, learn about conservation, and teach others about the subject.
Conservation and Scouting go hand in hand. Since getting outdoors is a big part of the Cub Scout and Scouts BSA programs, it makes sense that we should teach Scouts about protecting our natural resources.
