Masha'Allah the Girl Scouts have been learning and having so much fun these past couple of months earning their badges, experiencing new things, and making friends.
We have been learning about science and technology, so we went on a field trip to MOSI. The girls participated in many activities. The Cadettes used technology and made their own movie. The Juniors learned about coding and programmed items on the computer screen to move. They also learned about force and energy and built their own roller coasters. The Brownies learned about computers, using an online search engine and sending emails.
The Daisies worked on the Earth Journey. They learned about how to be prepared for trip or a journey. They also learned about their feelings and how it's ok to express them the right way using good words. We went outside to collect nature things and sort them out in various ways. They learned about flowers, made foam flowers and learned how the flowers get nutrients by making flowers using straws. We ended it up with learning about our special skills ( good reader, good at cleaning up, helping each other...). We worked on a poster about helping to protect nature and the environment around us.
The Brownies have been learning about countries all over the world including Italy, Russia, Palestine, and China. They are learning about the culture there and how each country is different regarding water conservation. The Juniors have been working on their Business Owner and Product Design Badges. We visited a local farm to see the products they sell and the type of marketing they use. Then the girls broke up into groups to design their own product, market it, and make a commercial.
World Thinking Day is February 20th. We are working with the other Girl Scouts in our Council and will be presenting Egypt. The girls are really excited and made SWAPS (Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere) to represent Egypt and exchange it with the other girls at the event. This will be an amazing opportunity to for Da'wah insha'Allah. If you would like to volunteer to make an Egyptian dish so that we can share it with the Girl Scouts at the event, please contact Sr. Manar.
