Juniors to Complete Final Steps of Animal Habitats Badge

juniorsAnimalHabitatsBadgeJuniors are working on the Animal Habitats Badge. The girls who went on the horseback ricing field trip completed the first two steps. (Girls who were unable to go horseback riding should contact Sis. Maryam.) The third step was covered at the 8 Nov. troop meeting.

Here are the final steps Juniors should complete by the Nov. 22 troop meeting, inshaAllah:

Step 4: Explore endangered habitats
When the animals no longer have their habitat, they have to adapt to a new place to live. Some animals can’t change, and end up becoming endangered. Answer these questions about one of the endangered animal habitats below:

  • Why is it in danger?
  • What is happening to the animals?
  • What are people doing to help the habitat?
  • Are the animals able to adapt?

The Arctic Circle.
The Gulf of Mexico
The Amazon rain forest

Step 5: Help protect animal habitats
You can take steps to help protect animals’ homes and prevent them from becoming endangered.

Wildlife awareness party. Choose an endangered animal. Dress up like the animal for a party with your Junior friends and tell your story: where you live, why your home is endangered, and how others can help. If there’s an organization that protects your habitat, share its name and mission. It’s a party because it’s positive: The more you know about how to help, the more you can do!

Sneak Peak: What Your Girl is Working On

From time to time we will post ‘Sneak Peaks’ into what your daughter is learning and/or achieving in Troop 3480. Troop 3480 is one of few multi-level troop in our area: we have Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, and Seniors, alhamdulillah.

Daisies are working on their Daisy Petals. This includes learning the Girl Scout Promise and the Girl Scout Law. Ask your Daisy daughter to recite the Girl Scout Promise to you:

On my honor, I will try:
To serve Allah and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

Brownies are working on their Painting Legacy patch. Ask your Brownie to show you some of their work. This will be added to the Wonders of Water patches the Brownies completed in the summer.

Juniors are working on their Get it Moving Journey. This journey offers Juniors a chance to earn three Girl Scout leadership awards: Energize, Investigate, and Innovate. The girls can choose to earn one, two, or all three. If they earn all three, they’ll see how the awards join together to create an energizing effect on their vest.

Cadettes have just begun working on their Digital Movie Maker badge. They’ll learn digital video basics from local professionals then film, edit and premier their own movie.

Seniors have decided to pursue the Collage Artist badge…
