January Bear Den Meeting

Jack and I went to the January meeting of his Bear Cub Scout Den. The boys worked on all of the requirements for their geology belt loop. The requirements included: defining geology; defining and categorizing igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks; explaining how each was formed, and; explaining the difference between a rock and a mineral.

They also completed achievements 3b, 17d and 19c towards their Bear badges. Using a computer, each scout identified two United States polar explorers and shared with the den their anmes and something interesting they learned about the person. They also made a carving using a butter knife and a bar of ivory soap of an animal from the North or South Pole.
