Seven Daisies in a Week

Supplies: Make a large poster board daisy for each girl to hold. On each daisy, print the appropriate day of the week (e.g.: SUN-DAISY).


My name is Sun-Daisy,

And we're here to speak

About Juliette Low

And Girl Scout week.

Just before the Civil War

Juliette was born

In Savannah, Georgia

One October morn.


Daisy was her nickname

Throughout her living days.

She loved games and writing

And performing in plays.

When Daisy grew up,

She worked with Girl Guides.

Her first troop was in Scotland

With seven girls by her side.


Daisy sailed to America;

March 12 was the day

She started a troop

Called Girl Scouts U.S.A.

Eighteen girls met with Daisy

Very eager to start

To make uniforms and badges

Each doing her part.


Juliette spoke the Law

For all Girl Scouts to learn

And told of requirements

For badges they could earn.

The troop went on hikes

Along nature trails

Watching birds of all kinds

And recording details.


Sports were important

To keep the girls fit.

Basketball was the first game

To become a big hit.

Daisy told the girls of camping

Under stars shining bright.

Destination-Camp Lowlands

The first Girl Scout campsite.


For the rest of her life

Daisy spread the word 'round

To millions of girls

In town after town.

Shortly after her death

A World Friendship fund began

To honor this grand lady

And her work through the land.


Each year we join

In a friendship celebration

With Girl Scouts 'round the world

And with great dedication.

We'll remember Juliette Low

Of whom we will speak,

For we're proud to be Girl Scouts

Each day of the week.
