From Daisy and Brownie Girl Scouts to Junior Girl Scouts and STUDIO 2B, the Legacy Project's resources support the Girl Scouts program.
For example, the award-winning Science Is... book –
part of the Legacy Project's Our World program – is a 515-page resource jam-packed with exciting and thought-provoking activities, experiments, puzzles, games, and more. Many Girl Scout leaders don't have a background in science and may feel hesitant about guiding girls in science explorations. Science Is... has plenty of background information and was developed over eight years to offer easy-to-use, fun activities. Use it for "What's Out There?" Try-Its with Brownie Girl Scouts.
The "Her Story" and "Citizen Near and Far" activities can be made more meaningful by reading and discussing Dream together, part of the Legacy Project's LifeDreams program.
Introduce "All in the Family" activities by sharing Something to Remember Me By. Across Generations activities and the annual Listen to a Life Essay Contest tie in closely to "Listening to the Past."
For Junior Girl Scouts, Science Is... again offers a wealth of ideas and information for "Let's Get Outdoors" and "Explore and Discover." The Legacy Project's
Across Generations program is a perfect fit with "Across Generations" and "My Heritage" activities. Free online activities include tips and ideas for visiting assisted living facilities, interviewing older adults, and Then & Now fill-in sheets. The Listen to a Life Essay Contest is a way to encourage intergenerational interaction. Dream and the LifeDreams activities tie to "Lead On," "Being My Best," "It's Important to Me," "Healthy Relationships," "Books," "Drawing and Painting," "Visual Arts," "Write All About It" and more.
For STUDIO 2B, the focus is on "by girls, for girls" and the Dream book is a talking tool you can use to encourage left and right brain thinking into any number of areas girls are interested in. For example, the teenager page in Dream with its labyrinth illustration is a great springboard to encourage girls to talk about relationship challenges. LifeDreams activities like the Millionaire Quiz tie to Focus Books like "Cashin' In" and "Got Money?" Other activities and self-assessments like the Dreamer Profile tie to "Uniquely ME!"
