Beaver Section News
Over the last 2 nights the Tue & Wed Colony went out a Lodge at a time to follow a trail set by a Leader. Some signs were obvious other not so but they all made it back to the Ranche. Whilst they were doing this the other Beavers played games.Fortunately it was fine both nights. The following of a trail is part of My Adventure Challenge Badge. The programme is designed to cover the requirements of aspects of the Challenge Badges as well as specific Activity Badges.
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.
