Animal Theme

Bug Theme

A Scout does not hurt or kill harmless things without reason. Cub Scouts will explore creepy crawlers and discover the world of insects and will learn that creepy crawlers are important to our world and how to be kind to our crawling friends.

Explore creepy crawly critters and discover the giant world of insects. Take a walk or hike and see how many insects – or their signs – you can spot. Learn the stages of an insect’s life and how some insects change inside a cocoon or chrysalis. Make a model of an insect home or build an ant farm. How does an insect survive the winter? Learn to treat bug bites and stings. Visit a beekeeper and taste fresh honey. Talk to a farmer, county extension agent or school biologist about the harmful and helpful things that insects do.
