Webelos & AOL Elective Adventure: Into the Wild

Do six from requirements 1 through 9.
1. Collect and care for an “insect, amphibian, or reptile zoo.” You might
have crickets, ants, grasshoppers, a lizard, or a toad. Study them for
a while and then let them go. Share your experience with your
Webelos den.
2. Set up an aquarium or terrarium. Keep it for at least a month. Share
your experience with your Webelos den by showing them photos or
drawings of your project or by having them visit to see your project.
3. Watch for birds in your yard, neighborhood, or town for one week.
Identify the birds you see, and write down where and when you saw
them.
4. Learn about the bird flyways closest to your home. Find out which
birds use these flyways.
5. Watch at least four wild creatures (reptiles, amphibians, arachnids,
fish, insects, or mammals) in the wild. Describe the kind of place
(forest, field, marsh, yard, or park) where you saw them. Tell what
they were doing.
6. Identify an insect, reptile, bird, or wild animal that is found only in
your area of the country. Tell why it survives in your area.
7. Give examples of at least two of the following:
a. A producer, a consumer, and a decomposer in the food
chain of an ecosystem
b. One way humans have changed the balance of nature
c. How you can help protect the balance of nature
8. Learn about aquatic ecosystems and wetlands in your area. Talk with
your Webelos den leader or family about the important role aquatic
ecosystems and wetlands play in supporting life cycles of wildlife and
humans, and list three ways you can help.
9. Do ONE of the following:
a. Visit a museum of natural history, a nature center, or a zoo
with your family, Webelos den, or pack. Tell what you saw.
