The New Girl Scout Leadership Experience debuts with the "It's Your World--Change It!" launch journeys.
In the Daisy journey for kindergarteners 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 About first-graders?
GSUSA encourages the following approach to the Girl Scout Daisy level:
· Girls who were in kindergarten in 2007-08 are Girl Scout Daisies, and used the existing program resources as they learned the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Councils continued to supplement this with local programming.
· When these girls enter first grade in 2008-09, register them as first-grade Daisies, enabling them to participate in the Daisy launch journey which lays the foundation for their next leadership steps as Girl Scout Brownies.
If a first-grade girl is registered as a Brownie in 2008-09, consideration should be made that the Girl Scout Brownie launch journey is being created especially for second- and third-graders.
