Don’t forget to join Season 107 with questions by Dorian Willems. Go to our website www.quizzypedia.com/question-of-the-day to submit your answers . The first three questions are: _____
Category: Personalia The scouting movement was created in 1907 when the founder, at that time the youngest Lieutenant General in the British Imperial Army, held the first scout camp on Brownsea island. What was the name of that author of Scouting for Boys (1908)?
Category: Mammalogy Sacagawea, a girl guide long before the scouting movement existed, became famous as the guide of the Lewis and Clark expedition from 1803 to 1806. During that expedition they were the first Europeans to encounter an animal subspecies that they gave a name that can either mean 'with grey-tipped' hair or 'fear inducing and gruesome'. Since the animal is brown, not grey and an encounter is most definitely fear inducing, the second meaning seems most likely. What subspecies of the brown bear did they encounter?
Category: Literature The various divisions within scouting are very diverse across the globe but one unit that is present in almost all forms of boy scouting are the cubs or wolf cubs. In this unit the children are part of a troop under the command of Akela while Raksha, Baloo, Bagheera and other characters play important roles. What book, originally published in 1894, was the inspiration for the cubs?
