My quick thoughts, back stage, and rants as I try to Teach kids about the Web while learning how to help others build a better Web.

Brief Lesson Plan for #Pack22 Wolf Scouts Tonight

1 min read

Wolves just finished a unit in school on adding coins so I figured we would work on the coin advancement tonight.

First we will go over the parts of a coin and do a coin rub.

Then we are going to play a game of tic tac toe where scouts add and subtract coins but the US coin pictures will be replaced with alien emojis.

The first person in a pair to answer correctly gets to put a coin in a tic tac toe board.

 The groups will be given a strip of alien emojis as their "coins". They will have to create a number system not based on ten and assign values to their coins. Finally, each group will write a funny word problem for the other groups to solve.

Of course, I always reserve the right to make this into some kind of relay race, call a coin move X steps...or something... if the kids get squirrely, but it's wet and rainy....so doubt I will call the audible.

Walked in the door and the better half whisked my eldest off to basketball. I am off to go play Cub Scout Den Leader with my other two. Going to focus on the Paws on Path and Air of the Wolf tonight.

Last meeting we focused on our Do Not Litter campaign and learned to write an editorial and build a website.We then flew some paper planes.

Tonight we are going to graph the difference in height between bouncing an inflated and deflated ball and then add additional force as a variable. Finally we will compare our models.

Then we will play a few games to practice catching and balancing.
