Webelos Den Meeting Sept. 29, 2008

Today we had a small group. Alex, Jaren, Mitchel and Derick were there. It is getting close to Alex's birthday so we worked on some things that he needed. We talked about the Scout Oath, Law, Motto and Slogan. We also talked about the Webelos uniform and what the Webelos badge stands for. These are all requirements to get the Webelos Badge. We played a game where they acted out the different parts of the Oath.

Then we worked on the Communicator. We talked about how we communicate. The boys thought of six dfferent ways that we communicate, like, talking, texting, the telegraph, telephone, body language, instant messaging and e-mail. Then we gave them a message in sign language and they looked at the code and figured it out. They had a lot of fun making up their own story with hyroglyphs.

Den Meeting September 9, 2008

I had three boys come. We worked on artist, by making a collage and learning about the color wheel. Artist #4, #9. The boys were giving an assignment to make a profile of someone in their family. We talked about how to do it, it also tells about it in the book on page 106. I gave the boys a folder to put their art projects in and start an Art Portfolio. Artist #2 required. I promised a treat if boys do the silhouette an bring it to show.

On Wednesday the 3rd we went over to Valley Jr. High and talked to Ms. Coates about art. She is an art teacher there. They learned about some jobs in art, about finding joy and satisfaction in your own art, and they were instructed in making an oragami frog. This passed off Artist #1 required for that pin.
