The First 7 Meetings What You Need:

The First 7 Meetings
The 5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals Journey gives girls an opportunity to learn about
the importance or caring for animals and themselves.
What You Need:
5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals Girl Book: Each girl needs
her own girl book. There are pieces of this that you’ll use with the girls,
and other portions may be read by the girls at home.
5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals Adult Guide: Use this to guide
girls through the Journey
“Getting into Girl Scouts: 5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals: Use this with your Adult
Guide
“Getting into Girl Scouts” provides ideas for the first 5 meetings that include activities
related to the Journey, supply lists and opening/closing activities; ideas for field trips and
sample emails to send your Girl Scout families. “Getting into Girl Scouts” helps you
structure time with the girls, planning tips, a checklist for each session, and provides
helpful hints along the way.
Getting Started:
Review your adult guide to the Journey and the girl book to see how things are laid out and
what activities make sense for you. Do the same with “Getting into Girl Scouts” to see how they
match up and help you plan. Of course, you don’t have to follow the guide or booklet word for
word—once you get a topic started, listen for where girls want to take it! Use the supply list to
prepare for your meeting. Then send an email to the families afterwards to tell them what the
girls learned and upcoming events.
Consider planning a field trip or two that relate to the Journey. There are a few ideas on the first
page of the Journey outline.
Information on Journey awards:
There is the opportunity to earn three leadership awards in each Daisy Journey. Only the first
one is included in this 5 week guide.



The first award is the Birdbath Award. Girls understand that they can care for
themselves and animals. To earn, girls name one way they can care for animals and one
way they can care for themselves.
The Red Robin Award is the second award. Girls use their new knowledge and creativity
to teach others how to care for animals. To earn, they choose animal care tips to share
with others and then tell this “story of animal care” in a creative way.
The final award is the Tula Award. Girls show they have gained courage and confidence
in teaching others about animal care. To earn, they share with one another the good
feelings they experienced as they taught others in their community about animal care.
Next Steps:
1. Once you have completed “Getting into Girl Scouts”, consider completing the Journey
and the final two awards.
2. Use the Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting to complete the Daisy petals. Check out Getting
into Girl Scouts: Daisy Petals for your next 3 meetings.
Objective:
Introduce girls to Girl Scouting by teaching them the Girl Scout Promise and Girl Scout
traditions.
Outcome:
Girls feel connected to their community and develop healthy relationships.
Supplies:
Trefoil Sheet – one per girl
Yarn
Crayons/Markers
Ball of String
Scissors
Hole Punch
Activities:
1. Welcome/Make Name Tags (10 minutes)
 Use a trefoil with the Promise on the back and make a name tag for each girl. She
could put her name on the front and something she likes to do.
 Supplies needed
o Trefoil for each girl
o Yarn
o Crayons/markers
o Scissors
o Hole Punch
2. Girl Scouts is …. (5-10 minutes)
 Ask the girls what they think Girl Scouts is.
o Girl Scouts is an organization for girls like you all over the world. We will be
going on a Journey and earning badges. We explore nature, science,
financial literacy and more. We will be learning leadership and taking action
to make a difference in our community.
 What do they want to do as a Girl Scout?
3. Go over any rules/expectations and the Girl Scout quiet sign. (5-10 minutes)
 Consider having girls help brainstorm a list of how they expect each other to act at
Girl Scout meetings and events.
 Girl Scout Quiet Sign – Girl scouts use the quiet sign when everyone is talking and
it’s time to be quiet. Someone raises her hand and stops talking. As others see her
hand in the air, they raise their right hands and stop talking too.
4. Get to know you game (15-20 minutes)
 Any get to know you game will work but below is one option.
o Web of Friends – Toss a ball of yarn around a circle as each girl says her
name and one thing about herself.
1. Supplies – You will need a ball of string.
5. Girl Scout Promise (10-15 minutes)
 Ask the following questions:
o What is a promise?
o Why is it important to keep our promises?
o What if we forget?
o What do the words “I will try” mean?
 Teach the Girl Scout symbol (right hand, three fingers).
 Teach the Girl Scout Promise. You should say a short phrase and then have them
repeat you. Go through it a few times. If you have time, you might talk about what
each part means.
o On My Honor, I will try to serve God and my country, to help people at all
times and to live by the Girl Scout Law.
 Promise Reminders – have the girls trace the promise on the back of their nametags.
Read it one more time once the girls have completed tracing.
o You might consider collecting the nametags for the first few meetings and
then passing them out again.
 Supplies
o You will need markers/crayons.
6. Clean Up (5-10 minutes)
 Tell the girls that Girl Scouts always leave a place looking better than how they found
it. Ask each girl to be responsible for her own place and her own supplies.
7. Closing Friendship Circle (5-10 minutes)
 This is a Girl Scout tradition and a great way to end every meeting.
o Have the girls form a circle, then cross their arms so that their right arm is
over their left arm. They then hold the hands of the girls on either side of
them.
o One girl or leader starts the circle by making a silent wish, then squeezing the
hand of the girl on her left with her right hand.
o Each girl squeezes the next girl’s hand in turn, until the squeeze “gets back”
to the first person.
o The first person then says “Goodbye Girl Scouts” and the girls can either twist
out of the circle or just drop hands.
 This might also be a great time for you to have the girls talk about what they learned
at the meeting or make announcements for the next meeting/activity.

on the head, she will say the name of the group instead (Girl Scouts). The
chosen child must now jump up and chase the first child around the circle,
trying to tag "it" before she can sit down in their place. If she succeeds,
"it" has another go. If she fails, she takes over as "it".

Scout Law. Today we are going to learn the Girl Scout Law.”

Red Robin Project
The Red Robin Project is an opportunity for girls to use their new knowledge and creativity to teach others how
to care for animals. The girls choose animal care tips to share with others and tell this story of animal care in a
creative way.
This project is a great opportunity for girls to put the lessons they learned into practice and educate others.
Once you’ve completed these prepared weeks, try the rest of the prepared samples and complete a Red Robin
Project.
Getting started:
A small explanation is available on page 86 of the adult guide.
Pages 75-81 in the adult guide provide a planning resource for you to lead the girls. They select a project at
the end of sample Session 7 in the adult guide.
The goal of the project is to have the girls teach other how to care for animals. You might consider using the
Comparing the Caring Chart you made during Week 4 as a starting point for your project.
