World Thinking Day and Global Action Award

The World Thinking Day Award and Global Action Award are now an OFFICIAL Award and, therefore, it may be worn on the front of the official uniform sash or vest in the same area where the badges go, which is the same side as the Girl Scout Council identification set. The other side of the vest has been designated for the Journey awards. Journey awards are placed above all other badges on the sash. There is not a single exact location for the WTD and GA awards.

It’s great fun and you only have to complete one of the activities in order for the girls to earn the badge each year.

You can lead the girls in doing an additional  activity and they can earn the Global Action award.

TIPS ON PLANNING/DECISION MAKING

WITH GIRL SCOUTS

STEP 1: Gather Ideas – Try Doing This!

Idea box: A box into which Girl Scouts put pictures or drawings or the names of things they would like to do.

Collage: Make a group collage of pictures drawn or cut from magazines or a word collage of the activities the girls would like.

Unfinished statements: Ask open-ended questions that girls could complete. “When I go outside, I like to…” “When I play, I like to…”

Brainstorm: Make a list on the chalkboard or flip chart. Carefully review brainstorming rules first (All ideas are ok. Be careful about interrupting).

Handbook Hunt: Search the handbook for ideas.

GROUP PROCESS HINT: HELP GIRLS TO LISTEN TO OTHERS.

Use a talking object (a speaking stone, shell, stick or ball). A Girl Scout may speak only when holding the talking object. Girls may hand it to the leaders and to each other, too.

STEP 2: Make choices and prioritize

Each Girl Scout thinks about the things she likes from the Idea Box or “What We Like To Do” collage.

The group decides what they want to do “Now”, “Soon” or “Later”.

From each list of “Now”, “Soon” and “Later”, the group decides which activities are best.

GROUP PROCESS HINTS: COMING TO CONSENSUS RATHER THAN A FORCED VOTE.

· Making a list of good points and bad points about each idea helps everyone make better choices.

· Use value voting about each activity by setting up 3 stations around the room. Label one NOW, another SOON, and the third LATER. For each activity, each girl does to that station.

STEP 3: Make a detailed plan

When the activity has been chosen, have the girls talk about all the things that will be done during the activity.

Write down all the things which need to be done or learned first.

Divide the list into jobs to be done, and note in what order they have to be done.

Make a kaper chart showing all the jobs with space for names of who will do it.

Choose girls for each job.

GROUP PROCESS HINTS: READINESS STRATEGIES

· Play “What if…” games to prepare for the unexpected.

· Play some “Unfinished Statement” games to assess the girls’ anxieties, expectations, and concerns. “When I try new things, I…”, “When I go on a trip, I…”, “Sometimes I get upset when…”
· As a role model, help girls develop flexibility by example. If you view the unexpected as an adventure, they will too.

STEP 4: Do it! Have fun!

STEP 5: Think about what you have done and evaluate it.

Try value-voting stations again, labeling them GREAT, OK, NOT AGAIN! or use faces to mark the corners.

Are you planning on doing a journey that involves gardening but have little room for one? Try having the girls make a bag garden.
