1 KISS Notes for A World of Girls! Planning to guide your troop on a Brownie Journey? KISS (Keep It Short and Sweet) Notes for the Girl Scout Brownies A World of Girls! Journey are a helpful resource. Through this Journey, Brownies will earn four awards: Hear a Story, Change a Story, Tell a Story and Better World for Girls!! Brownies earn these awards once they have learned about the many roles that are open to them and the possibilities they have within those roles. The purpose of KISS Notes is to provide an overview of the Journey your girls have chosen. On the following pages you will find a snapshot of the Journey sessions corresponding with each award in this Journey. There are three types of activities for each session: Active Discussion, Hands-on Activity and Guest Speaker/Side Trip. Choose one or more activity from each category to achieve the session goal. As girls successfully meet the session goals, they will earn the Journey s and benefit from the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. At the end of the booklet you will find some helpful hints for planning the Change a Story Project*. In-depth details on the Journey and how each award is earned can be found in the Adult How-To Guide and the Girl Book. Remember: 1. Use your imagination! It s your Journey! Customize it with input from your girls. 2. If you haven t already, watch this six-minute video that takes a lighthearted approach to showing how adults partner with girls during the Girl Scout Leadership Experience: 3. The sample sessions in the How-To Guide provide a framework for exploring the Journey. Troops are free to modify or substitute activities. 4. It is not necessary to do every suggested activity in a session, but the leader is responsible for ensuring that girls achieve the session goals. 5. You may wish to use the same sample session over the course of two or more meetings. Session does not equal meeting. 6. You do NOT have to do everything yourself. Connect with parents, other community members and older Girl Scouts for help. 7. Girl Scout Journeys come to life when troops make the Journey experience their own. Girls and Adults customize Journeys by taking advantage of a variety of resources: a. Trips and Tours 2009: a great resource Girl Scouts can use to find ideas for trips and tours in and around the state of Missouri. Ask for a copy of this book in the Emerson Resource Center b. Local experts or organizations who can build on the Journey theme 8. During the Journey, you can supplement activities using the Brownie Girl s Guide to Girl Scouting skill-building badges such as: a. Letterboxer - learn how to have fun adventures by finding and hiding letterboxes b. Inventor - think like an inventor c. Pets - care for pets d. Making Games - create new games and share them with others e. Making Friends - learn how to be a good friend 9. Use the Journey Session Worksheet at the end of the KISS Notes to organize and plan your troop meetings. 10. The Adult How-To Guide provides helpful discussion prompts, detailed activity descriptions and different options for the Journey. 11. The Girls Book provides a fun, engaging content ranging from fictional tales, games and puzzles to real-life stories about women. Girls can participate and learn from these activities in any Girl Scout Pathway (e.g. troop, event or series). 12. GSUSA provides fun and interactive map you can use to customize your Journey. The map will provide you with ideas for including your other Girl Scout activities in your Journey. The map can be found here: Need more help? Contact the Emerson Resource Center.
