Movies, merry-go-rounds and music? To be a good leader, a Girl Scout must be aware of her powers: her skills and interests that can make a difference to her and her community. Sometimes to uncover your strengths you need to try out and learn new things. In this unique program Girl Scout Juniors will learn about entertainment technology and its connections to our body, senses and even major planetary processes!
Specific activities include:
Get moving and get gardening! Gardening can be many things to many people, including a way to save energy! The First Lady Michelle Obama uses the White House garden to raise awareness about healthy eating habits and the benefits of eating local food. Eating and growing produce locally means food travels smaller distances- and you guessed it- saving energy! Speaking of energy, plants themselves are responsible for converting energy from the sun into energy the rest of us can use. During this session juniors will learn about plants from the ground up and get hands-on with some planting of their own!
Everyone has a story to tell, and by trying on different roles you might even change that story! Investigate a variety of animals and animal habitats during this wild program! Juniors will explore coastal ecosystems and the living community within them, and experience close encounters with regional fauna in our Education Center’s wet lab. They will get a first-hand glimpse at what it takes to maintain their aquarium homes aboard the USS Yorktown and what it is like to play the role of “care-taker”. The program will close with an eye-opening look into endangered habitats around the world and locally, and what girl scouts can do to help!
