Washington D.C. Girl Scout alum, Kirsten Lyons, completed her Gold Award Project last summer by addressing the issue of hurricane preparedness for children in San Juan, Puerto Rico. She worked with a team of professionals including an illustrator, reading specialist, and translator to create a lesson plan for classes that she taught to children in the San Juan community. The lesson plan included a coloring book with captions in English and Spanish that share information in a fun, safe, and educational way.
This year's hurricane season is predicted to be very active, and Kirsten want to do everything she can to serve high risk communities. She would like to zoom with Daisies and Brownies troops to teach about hurricane preparedness and share her coloring book. To schedule a zoom, please email Kristen.
