Boy Scout Webelos: Earth Rocks
March 10 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Become a geologist for a day and learn the basics of rocks and minerals and the reasons why they are so important in our daily lives. Learn the rock cycle using kitchen gadgets, build a gum drop mineral model, experiment with mineral test kits, go on a geologic product scavenger hunt, and locate important local features on Michigan maps. Interested in more scouting adventures? Come early for Webelos: Castaway from 10 a.m. – noon to satisfy requirements for two electives within the same day! If you decide to do both, remember to pack a lunch. We will be outside for a portion of the program, so be sure to dress for the weather. Please preregister, (810) 227-8917.
Time: 1 – 3 p.m.
Cost: $5 scout
