1 The First 7 Meetings The 5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals Journey gives girls an opportunity to learn about the importance or caring for animals and themselves. What You Need: 5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals Girl Book: Each girl needs her own girl book. There are pieces of this that you ll use with the girls, and other portions may be read by the girls at home. 5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals Adult Guide: Use this to guide girls through the Journey Getting into Girl Scouts: 5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals: Use this with your Adult Guide Getting into Girl Scouts provides ideas for the first 5 meetings that include activities related to the Journey, supply lists and opening/closing activities; ideas for field trips and sample s to send your Girl Scout families. Getting into Girl Scouts helps you structure time with the girls, planning tips, a checklist for each session, and provides helpful hints along the way.

2 Getting Started: Review your adult guide to the Journey and the girl book to see how things are laid out and what activities make sense for you. Do the same with Getting into Girl Scouts to see how they match up and help you plan. Of course, you don t have to follow the guide or booklet word for word once you get a topic started, listen for where girls want to take it! Use the supply list to prepare for your meeting. Then send an to the families afterwards to tell them what the girls learned and upcoming events. Consider planning a field trip or two that relate to the Journey. There are a few ideas on the first page of the Journey outline. Information on Journey awards: There is the opportunity to earn three leadership awards in each Daisy Journey. Only the first one is included in this 5 week guide. The first award is the Birdbath Award. Girls understand that they can care for themselves and animals. To earn, girls name one way they can care for animals and one way they can care for themselves. The Red Robin Award is the second award. Girls use their new knowledge and creativity to teach others how to care for animals. To earn, they choose animal care tips to share with others and then tell this story of animal care in a creative way. The final award is the Tula Award. Girls show they have gained courage and confidence in teaching others about animal care. To earn, they share with one another the good feelings they experienced as they taught others in their community about animal care. Next Steps: 1. Once you have completed Getting into Girl Scouts, consider completing the Journey and the final two awards. 2. Use the Girl s Guide to Girl Scouting to complete the Daisy petals. Check out Getting into Girl Scouts: Daisy Petals for your next 3 meetings.

3 Objective: Introduce girls to Girl Scouting by teaching them the Girl Scout Promise and Girl Scout traditions. Outcome: Girls feel connected to their community and develop healthy relationships. Supplies: Trefoil Sheet one per girl Yarn Crayons/Markers Ball of String Scissors Hole Punch Activities: 1. Welcome/Make Name Tags (10 minutes) Use a trefoil with the Promise on the back and make a name tag for each girl. She could put her name on the front and something she likes to do. Supplies needed o Trefoil for each girl o Yarn o Crayons/markers o Scissors o Hole Punch 2. Girl Scouts is. (5-10 minutes) Ask the girls what they think Girl Scouts is. o Girl Scouts is an organization for girls like you all over the world. We will be going on a Journey and earning badges. We explore nature, science, financial literacy and more. We will be learning leadership and taking action to make a difference in our community. What do they want to do as a Girl Scout? 3. Go over any rules/expectations and the Girl Scout quiet sign. (5-10 minutes) Consider having girls help brainstorm a list of how they expect each other to act at Girl Scout meetings and events. Girl Scout Quiet Sign Girl scouts use the quiet sign when everyone is talking and it s time to be quiet. Someone raises her hand and stops talking. As others see her hand in the air, they raise their right hands and stop talking too.

4 4. Get to know you game (15-20 minutes) Any get to know you game will work but below is one option. o Web of Friends Toss a ball of yarn around a circle as each girl says her name and one thing about herself. 1. Supplies You will need a ball of string. 5. Girl Scout Promise (10-15 minutes) Ask the following questions: o What is a promise? o Why is it important to keep our promises? o What if we forget? o What do the words I will try mean? Teach the Girl Scout symbol (right hand, three fingers). Teach the Girl Scout Promise. You should say a short phrase and then have them repeat you. Go through it a few times. If you have time, you might talk about what each part means. o On My Honor, I will try to serve God and my country, to help people at all times and to live by the Girl Scout Law. Promise Reminders have the girls trace the promise on the back of their nametags. Read it one more time once the girls have completed tracing. o You might consider collecting the nametags for the first few meetings and then passing them out again. Supplies o You will need markers/crayons. 6. Clean Up (5-10 minutes) Tell the girls that Girl Scouts always leave a place looking better than how they found it. Ask each girl to be responsible for her own place and her own supplies. 7. Closing Friendship Circle (5-10 minutes) This is a Girl Scout tradition and a great way to end every meeting. o Have the girls form a circle, then cross their arms so that their right arm is over their left arm. They then hold the hands of the girls on either side of them. o One girl or leader starts the circle by making a silent wish, then squeezing the hand of the girl on her left with her right hand. o Each girl squeezes the next girl s hand in turn, until the squeeze gets back to the first person. o The first person then says Goodbye Girl Scouts and the girls can either twist out of the circle or just drop hands. This might also be a great time for you to have the girls talk about what they learned at the meeting or make announcements for the next meeting/activity. More to Explore Field Trip Ideas: o Participate in a service unit or council sponsored event. Speaker Ideas:

5 o Invite a troop of older Girl Scouts to a meeting to share about their experiences. Family Follow-Up Use the below as a template to let families know what girls did at the meeting today.

Outcome: Girls feel connected to their community and develop healthy relationships. Supplies: Name tags from the previous week Additional name tag supplies if you have a new girl Activities: 1. Welcome (5-10 minutes) Pass out the name tags to the girls. If you have new ones, have them make a name tag. Ask the girls what they learned at the last meeting. As a group say the Girl Scout Promise. You might need to say a line and have them repeat it again. You could also have them read it from their name tags. 2. Get to Know You Game (15-20 minutes) Any game will work but this is one option. o Name Chase - The child who is "it" stands up and walks around the outside of the circle tapping each child on the head and saying their name, with prompting if necessary. At some point, when she taps a child on the head, she will say the name of the group instead (Girl Scouts). The chosen child must now jump up and chase the first child around the circle, trying to tag "it" before she can sit down in their place. If she succeeds, "it" has another go. If she fails, she takes over as "it". 3. Girl Scout Law (10-15 minutes) Say: When we say the Girl Scout Promise we say that we will live by the Girl Scout Law. Today we are going to learn the Girl Scout Law. Have them repeat a line after you. Take a moment to talk about what each line means to them. o I will do my best to be Honest and fair, Friendly and helpful, Considerate and caring, Courageous and strong, and Responsible for what I say and do, And to Respect myself and others,
