Back in September we went on field trip with the Cub Scouts to Volo Bog where the Cub Scouts fulfilled a couple requirements. Noah's Cub Scout pack is very family friendly so whatever they schedule we all can attend. The kids started by doing a one foot observation. They were supposed to rope off a one square foot area and observe what they could see close up. We had a pretty boring spot where all we could see was grass and leaves. There weren't any bugs in our area. I think Noah found a few different things. Then someone had the bright idea to make the square foot vertical so they observed the bushes.
