On Wednesday the Colony carried out 4 experiments to gain their Experiment Activity Badge. Experiment 1 This was to see how a single colour of a felt tip pen was in fact made up of several different colours. Experiment 2 This involved putting two substances together to produce a gas which inflated a balloon. Experiment 3 Is it possible to thrust an ordinary straw into an uncooked ordinary potato without the straw crumpling up ? Experiment 4 How strong is an egg ?

Tue & Wed 24/25th May

The plan was that each Lodge would have time doing some bouldering on our set up whilst the rest played games. Tue went according to plan but there was a terrible turn out on the Wed with only 8 Beavers turning up. The 8 spent longer on the activity before we had a games session for them. Bouldering forms part of the My Adventure Challenge. We now have a week off so that the adults can have a holiday. We restart on Tue / Wed 7th/8th June with the Experiment Activity Badge.
This week the Beavers were asked to bring in some empty boxes, egg boxes etc to make junk models, but this was different to what we have in the past. Zoi came to talk to the Beavers about their community. Each lodge was given a large sheet of paper and asked to draw buildings in the Community. Once completed they had to use the 'junk' they had brought in and made a model of one of the buildings. They all did exceptionally well. This week we said good bye to Austin, Ellie, Isaac and Joseph - we wish them well as they go into Cubs. This week Cara, Vincent and Daisy were invested into the Group, having learnt and understood their Beaver Promise.
