#1 Pick the Right Gear for an Outdoor HikeThis activity fulfills step 3 of the Brownie Hiker badge.Just like you can’t play sports without the rightequipment (playing soccer without a ball wouldbe pretty tough!), you can’t hikewithout the right gear. By the end of thisactivity, you should have your hiker backpackready.Visit an outdoor store or ask an experiencedhiker what they pack for a hike.Questions to ask:Clothes: What will I need for cool days? Forwarm days? For weather unique to my area?Shoes: What kind of shoes will be best for myhike?Backpack: How do I know it fits me? Howmuch room should it have for supplies?First-Aid Kit: What should I put in it?Water: What will I carry it in? How will I keep itcool?Try It! Camp Fashion ShowMake a pile of all types of clothes and pick the best and worst ones for camping. Then show them off to yourfriends or family and see if they can tell which are the best for camping and which are the worst and why.What else might you put in your backpack to bring on your hike?2

#2 TrailmarkingThis activity fulfills step 2 of the Brownie Hiker badge.Hikers use trail signs to leave messages so another group canfind or follow them in the woods. They can be made using sticks,stones, or other available materials and should be placed wherethey can easily be seen by other hikers.Trail Signsorkeep goingthis wayIt is important when making trail signs that any wood or plantmaterials you use are “dead and down” before using them. Youwant to make certain you are not directly disturbing any visiblehabitats, or creating opportunity for excessive erosion or otherdangerous situations.When going on a hike, be sure to:go ten stepsthis waystop, goanother wayorsplit your group.half go left,half go rightdanger Go with an adult Use known trails Carry a trail map, compass, water bottles, first-aid kit, andother supplies Dismantle trail signs once you have finished using themPractice making trail signsCreate your own trail through your houseor yard for your friends and family tofollow.

#3 Make it RainThis activity is part of the It’s Your Planet—Love It! Journey.Try this activity to create your very own water cycle. Have an adult help you do the experiment below.Instructions:Supplies: A drinking glass or glass jar Plate Hot water Ice cubes Index cards Pour about two inches of very hot water into theglass container. Cover the container with the plate and wait a fewminutes before you start the next step. Put the ice cubes on the plate. Wait and watch what happens.What’s happening?When the plate gets cold it causes the moisture inthe warm air that is trapped inside the container tocondense and form water droplets. So you just madeit rain!This is the same thing that happens when it rainsoutside. Warm, moist air rises and meets colder airhigh in the atmosphere. The water vapor condensesand forms droplets (precipitation or rain) that fall tothe ground.The Water CycleThe amount of water on earth is always thesame, but it is constantly moving from theoceans to the air to the land and back again.ensationCondRuin Theto wth ate erriv thba ers at fck an allin d l s oto ak nth es theeoc and lanea th dns en go.flo eswsnoff4EvaporationAs the air cools, the teeny-tinydroplets get bigger and heavierand fall to earth in the form ofrain, snow, sleet, or hail.Thesan un sd h hiea nebe ts th s ovecome e wa r thes a ter, ocvap wh eanor. ichPrecipitationThe vapor turns into a cloud,which is a group of teeny-tinywater droplets.
