Taken from the Volunteer Toolkit Badge Year for Brownies Girl Scout Way 1 Overview Note to Volunteers The excitement and fast pace of running troop meetings for the first time can sometimes leave us tongue-tied. For that reason, scripting is included for guiding girls through a meeting; these "lines" are under the heading "SAY." However, you know your girls best. If you feel you don't need the script, do what makes sense for you and your girls. For the Closing Ceremony, it would be ideal to take girls outdoors to “Leave a place better than you found it.” For example, you can plan to take them outside your meeting area, to a park, a school, or on a trail. Prepare Ahead Get your badges here. Print and cut out green Girl Scout trefoils from online, make sure to have at least 1 for each girl to color (these will be used in Activity 3: Make a trefoil name tag) Print a copy of a World Trefoil symbol or have an actual pin to show girls For snack time, prepare a large bowl of frosting with green food coloring; plain cookies or cupcakes, enough for each girl Print out lyrics to “Make New Friends” Get Help from Your Friends and Family Network Your Friends and Family Network can include: Girls’ parents, aunts, uncles, older siblings, etc. Other volunteers who have offered to help with the meeting. Ask your network to help: make snacks welcome girls to the meeting supply materials for the session Meeting Length 90 minutes The times given for each activity will be different, depending on how many girls are in the troop. Plus, girls may really enjoy a particular activity and want to continue past the allotted time. As much as possible, let them! That's part of keeping Girl Scouting girl 2015 GSUSA.

Taken from the Volunteer Toolkit Badge Year for Brownies Girl Scout Way 1 Stickers Scissors Hole Punch Steps Talk about sisterhood, show girls a World trefoil pin, and have girls make Trefoil name badges. SAY: This world trefoil pin is the global symbol for the Girl Scouts. You know what else this is? It’s a directing sign that became a guide for people who traveled by boat to far places of the earth. No matter where in the world you are, if you meet up a Girl Scout or Girl Guide, you’ll see the same trefoil symbol. This trefoil symbol is one of the Girl Scout traditions. As a Girl Scout, you are part of a sisterhood. This means that all the girls in your troop, and all the Girl Scouts around the world—are your special sisters! Let’s all make trefoil badges to show our membership in this special sisterhood. o First, cut out your trefoil. Make sure your name is on the front of it. o You can decorate it with stickers or color it more if you want. o Then punch a hole through the top (or I’ll do it for you.) o Tie a piece of yarn through the hole, long enough for you to wear around your neck. o Cut the yarn and tie it around your neck (or I’ll cut and tie it for you) Activity 4: Juliette Gordon Low Memory Game Time Allotment 20 minutes Materials A tray to hold items A napkin to cover items Pen and paper, enough for each girl Items for story: o Daisy flower (or image) o Crayons 2015 GSUSA.

Then cover the items with a napkin and ask girls to write down what they remember is on the tray. SAY: Let’s play a Juliette Gordon Low Memory Game. I’ll tell you her story and point to the items on this tray that have to do with the story. Then I’ll cover the tray and you’ll write down what you remember. Juliette Magill Kinzie Gordon was born on Halloween [hold up pumpkin], October 31, 1980, in Savannah, Georgia. Her nickname growing up was Daisy [hold up Daisy flower]. Daisy was a sensitive, curious, and adventurous girl who was very caring and loved to laugh. She liked all kinds of sports, art [hold up crayons], animals— especially horses [hold up toy horse], and nature [hold up leaf]. As a child, Daisy had ear injuries. When she became an adult, she married William Mackay Low [hold up ring]. At her wedding, a grain of rice [hold up rice grains] got stuck in her ear and she lost almost all of her hearing. Juliette and her husband lived in England and Georgia. While in England, she met Sir Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Boy Scouts [hold up boy figure]. She was so excited about the wonderful things the Boy Scouts did that she decided to do the same for girls. She told her cousin, “I’ve got something for the girls of Savannah, and all of America, and all the world, and we’re going to start it tonight.” That was in 1912, more than 100 years ago. Now the Girl Scouts is the largest leadership organization in the world! [hold up trefoil or Girl Scout pin] [Cover items on the tray and have girls list what they remember is on there. After girls have finished writing the list, unveil the tray] o How many items did you remember? o What ones were the easiest to remember? o What do you like the most about Daisy’s story? 2015 GSUSA.

Taken from the Volunteer Toolkit Badge Year for Brownies Girl Scout Way 1 Have girls clean up their meeting place. SAY: One important part of the Girl Scout Way is that we take care of the world around us. One way is to leave our community a better place than we found it. For example, if you go to a park or hike on a trail, you make sure to “leave no trace” by cleaning up after yourself. Let’s start with our meeting place. What can you do here to make it better than you found it? [Note to volunteers: Girls can put liter in trash bags, straighten chairs, and put supplies away.] Activity 7: Closing Ceremony Time Allotment 10 minutes Materials Lyrics to “Make New Friends” Steps Girls sit in a circle to sing “Make New Friends” and learn the Girl Scout sign. [Note to volunteers: If you can, take girls outdoors for cleanup. For example, outside around your meeting area, to a park, a school, or on a trail.] SAY: Let’s end our meeting with a Girl Scout tradition: making the Girl Scout sign. It’s a symbol of promise. If you don’t know how to do it, hold up your right hand with your first three fingers extended. Each finger stands for one part of the Promise. The little finger is held down your thumb. Make the sign and say goodbye to your sisters until next time! 2015 GSUSA. All rights reserved. Not for commercial use.
