The Girl Scout Leadership Experience comes to life for girls and adults in the journeys. All the leadership keys of Discover, Connect, and Take Action, along with the Girl Scout processes of Girl-Led, Cooperative Learning, and Learning by Doing are woven through each journey. What will you find in these new books?
In this journey for kindergartners and first-graders, a favorite pastime-gardening-meets the Girl Scout Law. The result is a storybook world of flowers and little girls who, together, do great things. Girl Scout Daisies will especially enjoy meeting the colorful, global characters who teach them to live the Girl Scout Law. The adult "how-to" guide offers Garden Story Time tips, key ideas for garden projects, and all the Girl Scout history and traditions needed for an adventure starring Amazing Daisy, a new flower friend for Girl Scout Daisies.
What are the most important keys for a Girl Scout to own? This quest, which has second- and third-graders traveling along two colorful trails-one they can enjoy on their own and one they explore with their Girl Scout group-answers that question in a very special way. Along the Quest, Girl Scout Brownies will meet three new friends and a bright and shining elf in a brand new Brownie story meant to inspire their own Take Action Projects. The accompanying adult guide offers all the tips needed to create and maintain a sense of fun and mystery along the entire Quest. Instructions for a Brownie Brainstorm, Brownie Team Trade, and other activities ensure a quality and fun time for the girls.
Power. In this journey, there's a whole spiral of it waiting for Girl Scout Juniors. This powerful journey is filled with ceremonies and circles, real-life heroines, and special new characters, including the fashion-savvy spider named Dez. Along the way, girls learn how their own power combines into team power and then moves out to become community power (kind of like how Dez weaves her web from the inside out). The journey's centerpiece is a comic story of girl heroines who will inspire the real-life Juniors as they take action to improve their own community.
Life is a maze of relationships and this journey has Girl Scout Cadettes maneuvering through all its twists and turns to find true friendships, plenty of confidence, and maybe even peace. The adult guide offers tips for talking about relationship issues with girls, and pointers for understanding Cadettes' development and creating a safe, welcoming space.
Girl Scout Seniors know the world is not ideal. This journey is their chance to imagine a perfect world-for girls. They're invited to create their vision as an art project-in any medium of their choice. Then they'll take action to make their vision a reality. Leaders, after all, are visionaries!
How often have you seen something that really needed to be changed and wondered, "Why isn't someone doing something about that?" This journey gives Girl Scout Ambassadors a way to be that someone-an advocate with the power to start the first flutter of real and lasting change. While creating their own "butterfly effect," they'll gain an array of skills-such as networking, planning, and learning to speak up for what they believe-that will benefit them as they prepare for life beyond high school.
