The April 2009 Cub Scout Monthly Theme is “Jurassic Pack.”
Here is the official BSA theme description:
“Explore the land before time! Imagine living in a time when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. What have paleontologists learned about the great beasts that roamed the Earth millions of years ago?
Did any dinosaurs live where you do now? Find out what they ate, where they lived, and how they moved. What could we learn of these creatures that lived so long ago?
Make a model of a dinosaur or visit a museum where dinosaur fossils can be seen. Make your own “dinosaur footprints” or “fossils” in plaster. Take a “dinosaur” scavenger hike by going on a hike and looking for things that might have been found during the Jurassic era.
This would be a great time to work on the Geology belt loop and pin.” [bold added]
