Cinco de Mayo is approaching, and we have a new patch program that would be the perfect activity for your troop - the Hispanic Heritage patch! Hispanics are people from countries that have drawn their traditions and history from the country of Spain. There are many Hispanics in the United States today. Select a Hispanic culture either from your own background or one that interests you, and complete an activity from Discover, Connect and Take Action. Some of the activity choices include eating a Hispanic meal, interviewing a woman of Hispanic heritage and learning a traditional Hispanic story, folk tale or song. This patch is appropriate for all Girl Scout grade levels.
