1 CHARACTER CHARACTER CHARACTER AIR OF THE WOLF RATIONALE FOR ADVENTURE This STEM-based adventure helps Wolves explore basic aspects of air often an overlooked substance. Then they discover some of the many things that air can do for us. TAKEAWAYS FOR CUB SCOUTS Experiments Easy yet fun activities Creativity A Scout is obedient. COMPASS COMPASS COMPASS ADVENTURE REQUIREMENTS Wolf Handbook, page Do the following investigations: a. Conduct an investigation about the weight of air. b. Conduct an investigation about air temperature. c. Conduct at least one of the following investigations to see how air affects different objects: i. Make a paper airplane and fly it five times. Make a change to its shape to help it fly farther. Try it at least five times. ii. Make a balloon-powered sled or a balloon-powered boat. Test your sled or boat with larger and smaller balloons. iii. Bounce a basketball that doesn t have enough air in it. Then bounce it when it has the right amount of air in it. Do each 10 times. Describe how the balls bounce differently when the amount of air changes. iv. Roll a tire or ball that doesn t have enough air in it, and then roll it again with the right amount of air. Describe differences in how they move. 2. Do the following: a. With other members of your den, go outside and record the sounds you hear. Identify which of these sounds is the result of moving air. b. Create a musical wind instrument, and play it as part of a den band. c. With an adult, conduct an investigation on how speed can affect sound. 3. Do the following: a. Explain the rules for safely flying kites. b. Make a kite using household materials. 4. With your family, den, or pack, participate in a kite derby, space derby, or raingutter regatta. Explain how air helps the vehicle move. Air of the Wolf 89

3 ACTIVITIES Activity 1: The Weight of Air (Requirement 1a) Ask the boys if they think air has any weight. After a few guesses, help them conduct this investigation. Tie two deflated balloons to a balance beam that you have prepared (see Meeting 1 Resources), with one balloon on either end of the stick. Now remove one of the balloons, inflate it, and reattach it in the same spot, which will make that end of the stick heavier. Or you can start with two identically inflated balloons and then let the air out of one or pop it, which will also affect the weight. Share this interesting fact: The air in a balloon blown up to 10½ feet in diameter would weigh 50 pounds, about as much as one of the boys. If the boys seem especially interested, you may try to actually weigh the air in the inflated balloon. Put paper clips or pennies in the deflated balloon, and see how many it takes to balance the beam. Use one of these formulas to guess the weight: one standard paper clip = 1 gram; one U.S. penny = 2.5 grams. If you want to convert the total to ounces: 1 ounce = grams, or 0.1 ounce = 2.83 grams. Activity 2: Temperature of Air (Requirement 1b) Testing the effect of warming or cooling on air is easy. First, give one of the Scouts a deflated balloon (again, be aware of any latex allergies in the den). Have him tie the balloon shut and set it in a pan of very warm water. While the balloon won t inflate, it will puff up enough for the boys to see that warm air takes more space (volume) than cooler air. Take another balloon, inflate it halfway, and have the boys measure its circumference. Then tie a thread loosely around the balloon and set it in the same water for three to five minutes. As the balloon gets warmer, note that the thread is visibly holding to its surface. Now, measure the balloon to see how much it expanded. Finally, to test the effects of cooling, have the Scouts set an inflated balloon outside (in cold weather), inside a refrigerator, or in ice water. Would the Scouts like to know the volume of air in a balloon? To get a rough idea (though not an exact figure), inflate a balloon to a certain size and measure it; then fill another balloon with water until it reaches the same size. Activity 3 (optional): The Effect of Air (Requirement 1c) If you have time, have the Scouts do the investigation in either 1c.iii or 1c.iv, or they can experiment further with their paper airplanes (1c.i). CLOSING If you have enough balloons left, finish the meeting with the thunder of bursting balloons. Tell the boys to imagine the sound of one balloon popping as being like a boy alone, with no friends. Then pop all the other balloons at once that s the sound of Scouting! AFTER THE MEETING Serve refreshments, if desired. Record completion of requirements 1a, 1b, and 1c. Work together to clean up the meeting place. Remind each Scout to bring a rinsed-out 20-ounce soft drink bottle for the next meeting s Bottle Band activity. Air of the Wolf 91

4 MEETING 1 RESOURCES GATHERING (REQUIREMENT 1C.I) Books on paper airplanes may be available at your local library, and you might also look at websites like and Print out several patterns of models that vary from the traditional dart-like plane. Show the Scouts how cutting flaps into the back edges of the wings and folding the flaps upward or just bending up the back edges may keep the planes aloft a bit longer. Either way, the air moving over the back edges will tend to push the nose of the plane up. If they require an explanation, have them hold a fairly large piece of cardboard at an angle and move their arms forward quickly. They should be able to feel the lift. ACTIVITIES Activity 1: The Weight of Air (Requirement 1a) You can make a balance beam with a dowel or other narrow piece of wood. Use a screw to attach a cross member so that it can swing easily. The cross member should be balanced, but if not, use small weights to make it balance (tape, small coins, or paper clips should work). Or, it may be easier to start with a balloon attached to each end and then balance the beam. 92 WOLF

5 MEETING 2 PLAN PREPARATION AND MATERIALS NEEDED U.S. and den flags Items for activities: Activity 1: a voice recorder or other device that Scouts can use to record sounds outdoors Activity 2: cardboard tube; string Activity 3: water; eight 20-ounce soft drink bottles; straws; measuring cup Activity 4: sections of corrugated cardboard (1½ x 8 inches); straws Materials for craft stick harmonicas (see Meeting 2 Resources) If you have access to the Internet during the meeting, find some videos of Aeolian harps instruments played solely by the motion of wind. The Scouts will likely be fascinated by these instruments. (Talk Time) GATHERING As Scouts arrive, have them create harmonicas. OPENING Have Scouts hum God Bless America on the craft stick harmonicas they made during the Gathering. Conduct a flag ceremony of your choosing that includes the Pledge of Allegiance and, as appropriate, the Scout Oath and Scout Law. TALK TIME Carry out business items for the den. Allow time for sharing among Cub Scouts. Discuss how the previous week s meeting on air serves as the basis for this week s meeting in which the boys will explore how wind can make music. ACTIVITIES Activity 1: Wind Sounds (Requirement 2a) Have the den go outside, and encourage the boys to listen closely for sounds that are associated with the wind. There may be many such noises (e.g., cans rolling on the pavement, wind whistling through the trees), but even gentle breezes will cause leaves to rustle or move wind chimes. While the Scouts are listening, record as many different sounds as you can, including some that aren t related to wind (dogs barking, doors shutting, car radios playing, etc.). Then play the recording and have each boy identify a sound that resulted from wind. Activity 2: Speed and Sound Investigation (Requirement 2c) Tell Scouts that in some countries, there is an instrument called a bullroarer that uses speed to create sound. This activity will use a similar concept to investigate how sound can be affected by speed. Tie a string to a cardboard tube, ensuring that the knot is secure. Have Scouts create a large circle with a single Scout in the center, and test the safety distance to ensure the circle is wide enough to keep the tube from hitting anyone. When ready, have the Scout hold the string and swing the tube above his head in a circle. Have each Scout take a turn, and encourage boys to try speeding up or slowing down the tube to see how the change in speed affects the sound. After each Scout has had a turn, have them share what they noticed. Air of the Wolf 93

6 Activity 3: Bottle Band (Requirement 2b) Have each Scout remove the cap from his 20-ounce bottle and blow gently across the top to hear the tone the bottle makes. Then line up the bottles on a flat surface. Leave one bottle empty, but pour the following amounts of water into the other seven bottles: cups, 2 cups, cups, 3 cups, cups, 4 cups, and cups. Now have the boys experiment, blowing gently across the open tops and listening for variations in tone. The water amounts given should produce a fairly accurate musical scale, and with some practice, the bottle band might play a tune! You will find that the more water a bottle contains, the higher its tone will be. The tone can be altered by inserting a straw in the bottle, placing a finger over the end of the straw, or pouring out some water. Activity 4: Soda Straw Pipe Organ (optional) Here s another way to create a musical wind instrument, if the den has time: Cut the eight straws down to the following lengths in inches: 4¼, 4½, 5¼, 6, 6¾, 7, 7¾, and 8½. Starting about 1½ inches from one end of the cardboard, push the straws between the corrugations and leave four empty corrugations between each straw. Flatten the top ends of the straws and cut off the corners. Blow into the instrument with your lips lightly around the straws like a harmonica. Listen to the unique sounds that come out as you continue blowing and sliding the instrument across your lips. CLOSING Tie the musical activities at this meeting to relevant points of the Scout Law. For example, the Wolf Scouts helped each other make the Bottle Band, and creating music probably made them feel cheerful. Review details for the upcoming outing in Meeting 3 if the kite derby will be held at a location and/or time different from the den meeting. Make sure all Scouts and their families know the plans. AFTER THE MEETING Serve refreshments, if desired. Record completion of requirements 2a, 2b, and 2c. Work together to clean up the meeting place. Remind each Scout to bring materials for making a kite at the next meeting. 94 WOLF MEETING 2 RESOURCES GATHERING Wooden Harmonicas Use the instructions for requirement 2b in the Wolf Handbook to create harmonicas using craft sticks. Materials: Two tongue depressors or wide craft sticks Scissors Paper Clear tape Three rubber bands (one wide, two skinny) 1. Cut two strips of paper the same size as a tongue depressor. 2. Place one tongue depressor on top of the other. Wrap one paper strip around each end of the tongue depressors. Wrap tape around each loop without touching the tongue depressors. 3. Slide off one tongue depressor. Stretch the wide rubber band around the length of the tongue depressor and paper loops. 4. Place the second tongue depressor back on top. Wrap one skinny rubber band around each end outside of each paper loop.

7 MEETING 3 PLAN PREPARATION AND MATERIALS NEEDED U.S. and den flags Materials for making kites (paper, sticks, string, glue, scissors, markers) and kite reels (wood blocks, dowels, glue, and a drill if the wood is not predrilled). It may be a good idea to have a parent or other adult present to help each Scout. If the den will hold a kite derby as part of this meeting, be sure that the meeting location allows a safe outdoor space for flying the kites. Confirm that a tour and activity plan has been submitted, if required, and that transportation to and from the event is in place. Secure signed activity consent forms. Unit den leader should have in possession (if required by local council practices) the tour and activity plan and a copy of the Guide to Safe Scouting. Prepare simple enough ribbons or awards for each Scout to be presented with a special award at the end of the kite derby. Awards could include: Most Colorful, Highest Flying, Fastest, etc. GATHERING As Scouts arrive, have them decorate the paper they will use to create their kites. OPENING Conduct a flag ceremony of your choosing that includes the Pledge of Allegiance and, as appropriate, the Scout Oath and Scout Law. During the ceremony, you could tie the waving of the flag into the previous week s discoveries about wind. TALK TIME Carry out business items for the den. Allow time for sharing among Cub Scouts. Review the information on kite safety (requirement 3a) and the science of air (requirement 4) in the Wolf Handbook. ACTIVITIES Activity 1: Making a Kite (Requirement 3b) Have each boy design and build his kite and assemble a kite reel. Use the directions in the Wolf Handbook for a newspaper kite (see the Meeting 3 Resources), or choose other design options for the den. If limited space is an issue, try making finger kites, which are not more than 8 to10 inches long and can be flown by simply running. Activity 2: Kite Derby (Requirement 4) Have the Wolf Scouts take their new kites outdoors to hold a small-scale kite derby. As an alternative, this can be planned as a separate activity with the pack or as part of a district event. Allow time for Wolves and adults who are able to help to try launching and flying their kites. CLOSING Close the meeting with appropriate remarks about kites flying high and a comparison to Scouts flying high by doing their best and soaring to their rank advancement. Air of the Wolf 95

8 AFTER THE MEETING Serve refreshments, if desired. Record completion of requirements 3a, 3b, and 4. Work together to clean up the meeting place. MEETING 3 RESOURCES Activity 1: Making a Kite Use the instructions for requirement 3b in the Wolf Handbook if your den will create newspaper kites. Materials: Two-page spread of newspaper Scissors Cellophane tape String Long sticks, bamboo plant rods, or ¼-inch wooden dowels Marker Upon completion of the Air of the Wolf adventure, your Wolves will have earned the adventure loop shown here. Make sure they are recognized for their completion by presenting the adventure loops, to be worn on their belts, as soon as possible according to your pack s tradition. 96 WOLF
