College for Kids

At College for Kids I got to choose 3 classes
to take. I chose book making, Vertebrate
animal dissection, and extreme engineering



Book Making


I made five books



This was my favorite book.



Vertebrate Animal dissection


Sadly I don't have any dissection pictures,

but I did dissect a Bull frog and a pig.

Extreme Engineering

I built a bridge in this class



I tested it for weight,
wind and an earth quake.







Caterpilars

I found a monarch caterpillar out in
a hay field on a milkweed one day
and I took it home and raised it

a "J" before becoming a chrysalis

Ben Delatour

This summer my Troop went
to colorado for summer camp.
They had a special Ducker program
because it was their 50th anaversary.

We camped in a climate called a Mountain desert.
So we had mountains...
more mountains...

and cacti
there were plenty of cacti too.



Wile I was at camp I shot archery.


Even though I already earned
the merit badge it was still fun!
