Note on Word Searches, Word Games, Mazes and such – In order to make these items fit in the two column format of Baloo’s Bugle they are shrunk to a width of about 3 inches.  Your Cubs probably need bigger pictures.  You can get these by copying and pasting the picture from the Word version or clipping the picture in the Adobe (.pdf) version and then enlarging to page width.  CD

Indian Nations Word Search

Alice, Golden Empire Council

Look for the names of fifteen Indian Nations hidden in this puzzle.  Names may be found up, down, across or diagonally.

Apache             Cherokee             Chickasaw

Choctaw           Comanche                    Cree

Hopi                   Huron                    Navajo

Omaha               Paiute                  Shawnee

Note:  There is a great gathering activity called Indian Moons in the CS Program Helps, pg. 2 NOV 07.  Boys (and/or adults) must line up the Indian names for the various Full moons with the month in which they occurred.  There are some really great names, e.g. “Falling Leaf Moon,’ and “Makes branches Fall in Pieces” Moon.  Alice
