Brownie Girl Scout Way Badge Part 2 Celebrating Juliette Low Each outline provides activities to complete the stated badge, supply lists and opening/closing activities. They also include additional ideas or field trips and sample s to send to your Girl Scout families. What You Need: The Brownie Girl s Guide to Girl Scouting one for each girl Getting Started: Read the badge related packets from The Brownies Girl s Guide to Girl Scouting and this packet before each meeting. Use the supply list to prepare for your meeting. Then use the template at the end of each session to communicate with families to tell them what the girls learned and upcoming events. Consider planning a field trip or two that relate to one of the badges. Each badge outline provides a few ideas.

2 Next Steps: Once you have completed these badges, consider continuing with one of these options. 1. Try one of the Brownie Journeys. (Check out the Getting Into Girl Scouts: World of Girls for your next 5 meetings.) 2. Earn additional badges from The Brownie Girl s Guide to Girl Scouting.

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.

7 Objective: Introduce girls to Girl Scouting by teaching them the Girl Scout Law and continuing practicing the Promise. 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,

20 Read the story below to the girls. Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Juliette Low who lived in Georgia and loved to ride horses. After she grew up, she went to London where she met Lord Baden- Powell, who founded the Boy Scouts. She was fascinated by the work he was doing. She studied with him for a while and decided to found a troop of Girl Scouts for the little girls who liked to ride horses in Georgia. So, Juliette Low said goodbye to the Boy Scouts in London and came home with the ideas that Lord Baden-Powell gave her. She formed a group of little girls who liked to ride horses and be together into a troop of Girl Scouts. The little girls loved it so much that the idea spread and now there are Girl Scout troops all over the world. Aren't we glad that a little girl named Juliette Low, from Georgia, who liked horses, went to London and met Lord Baden-Powell, the founder of the Boy Scouts, and came to start the wonderful world of Girl Scouts? Ask the following questions: o Who started Girl Scouts? o Why did she start Girl Scouts? o Do you know anything else about Juliette Low? 3. Girl Scout Sing-A-Long (15-20 minutes) Complete Step 1 of the Brownie Girl Scout Way badge. Teach the girls three new Girl Scout songs.

You might also have an older girl or two come to your troop meeting to help. To teach songs, you could sing a line, then have the girls repeat after you. You might need to sing a song a few times. 4. Share the Sisterhood (15-20 minutes) Complete Step 3 of the Brownie Girl Scout Way badge - make a team mural, collage flag or other artwork. Have the girls work together to create a piece of art that shows the sisterhood of your troop. 5. Leave a Place Better than You Found it (5-10 minutes) This is Step 4 of the Brownie Girl Scout Way badge A Better Meeting Place. Tell the girls It s the Girl Scout way to care about the world around us- whether it s a room, a campground or the world. We always try to leave a space better than we found it. Ask the girls for ways they can leave their Girl Scout meeting space better than found it. Narrow it down to one and if possible complete it today. If it is something that takes a little preparation, plan to complete it at the next meeting.

21 6. Closing Complete a Girl Scout Friendship Circle.
