Beaver Section News

9th & 11th JULY 2018

This week we were working towards the Pets at Home badge. Donna very kindly came in and spoke to the children about how to care for animals. They then had to complete some questions and draw a picture of their pet. To complete this badge the Beavers have to look after an animal for 6 weeks and make a journal of the things they have to do. Many thanks to Donna for her help.
This week we celebrated American Independence Day. Two lodges played American baseball outside and then they came into the Ranche and had 3 different stations for an activity. One table was a wordsearch, the second was to colour in the American Flag and then on the third table they had to read a description of a place in America and match it with the appropriate photograph
Here is a further picture of the camp which shows how lucky with the weather they were.
The experiments for the Wed Colony were different to those on Monday. This time one experiment was to see which common product was best for cleaning a coin, how an effervescent substance when added to water could blow the top off a small container and lastly how boiling water could leech out the colour from a Smarty type sweet. The result provided some wonderful colour patterns.
