Monthly Theme - Take Flight

Air has the power to push and pull objects so fast that they can fly. This month learn all about air and why it is needed to fly. Learn about gravity. Make your own flying machines and learn about the Wright brothers. Figure out which types of paper airplanes fly further, higher, faster and longer, and why. Hold a pack-wide plane derby fun night! How many things can you name that can fly? Study birds and their flyways. Why do some birds fly in a V formation? Hold a den or pack kite derby this month. Take a field trip to the airport or a science museum. Earn the Science belt loop and pin.

Some of the purposes of Cub Scouting developed through this month’s theme are:

Sportsmanship and Fitness. Boys will demonstrate good sportsmanship while participating in the pack kite derby or paper airplane derby.

Fun and Adventure. Cub Scouts will explore the exciting world of flight.

Personal Achievement. Boys will feel a sense of pride as they watch their creations take to the air.

The core values highlighted this month is:

Courage. Cub Scouts will learn of the courage it takes to follow one's dreams.

Health and Fitness. The outdoor activities of early Spring lend themselves to promoting health and fitness.

Can you think of others?
