GATHERING ACTIVITIES

Note on Word Searches, Word Games, Mazes and such – In order to make these items fit in the two column format of Baloo’s Bugle they are shrunk to a width of about 3 inches.  Your Cubs probably need bigger pictures.  You can get these by copying and pasting the picture from the Word version or clipping the picture in the Adobe (.pdf) version and then enlarging to page width.  CD

Looking closely without a Microscope

San Gabriel Valley, Long Beach, Verdugo Hills Councils

Science is about testing and about looking closely. Some scientists use microscopes to take a close look.  We're going to use a simple piece of paper.  Here's what you do:

  • Take a piece of paper and cut in the middle a “window” 1” square.  (It's easiest to fold the page in half before you cut.)
  • Choose something interesting: a tree trunk, a leaf, flower, the soil surface or a slice of soil from a shovel. 
  • Put your window over the thing and look at it closely.
  • Take your time- this is not a race. 
  • To help you see more details, draw a picture of what's inside your square. 
  • Now let's think about what you've found.
