Bug Collections
York Adams Council

Display bug collections and terrariums at the pack meeting for all to see. This should be a carry-over from your den meetings—you can make a really neat terrarium out of a 2-liter soda bottle!

Invite an Entomologist
Invite an entomologist to the pack meeting as a guest speaker.

Invite a Snake Expert
York Adams Council

Invite a snake expert to the pack meeting as a guest speaker.

Tadpoles & Frogs
York Adams Council

Collect tadpoles and watch them change into frogs. Have the Cub Scouts make posters on the process and bring frogs to the pack meeting. This is another idea that can start in the den meetings. How about a trip to a local pond? (Get permission first and make sure you have enough adults to help out!)

Celebrate Earth Day
York Adams Council

Earth Day (April 22) and Earth Week (April 16-22) fall within this month. I've been on the internet and have found many sites with lots of ideas for groups to celebrate. You could structure your entire month's plans around this important event, culminating in a day of service that ends with a Pack Meeting outside.
