When we say Girl Scout, one of the most common things that hit the peoples’ mind is the Girl Scout cookies.

Tremendous Roles – Leadership

The Girl Scout organization plays a tremendous role as the leadership organization of the girls in the USA. Girls all over the nation continue to be benefited by the variety of programs organized by them. One of the most anticipated programs organized by the Girl Scouts of USA is the Girl Scout cookies program.

Learning New Skills

When we see from outside, the Girl Scout cookies program will seem to create a lot of fun and entertainment among the girls. Apart from the fun aspect of it, those girls get to learn some important learning in their lives:

  • Their interpersonal skills get developed.
  • They get to learn people management.
  • Money management is one of the most significant aspects that they get to learn from this program.
  • They learn the techniques for business and a certain amount of business virtues.
  • They get the ability to set specific goals and adopt strategies to achieve the same.

Hence the Girl Scout cookies program keeps encouraging girls to lead their lives with confidence and individuality.

Recycling Foundations

Recycling is a great project for Girl Scout’s to undertake and a delight to teach.  The foundation is education about the importance of being good stewards of the earth.

Reinforcing Learning

From there leaders have a smorgasbord of activities to reinforce the learning.  The trick is to develop an attitude of fun with the necessity of recycling.

Free Online Environmental Resources

Recycle City (http://www.epa.gov/recyclecity/) was created by the EPA.  In addition to basic recycling information, it contains a game which highlights the importance of recycling.

Benefits-of-Recycling (www.benefits-of-recycling.com) provides good basic information about recycling.  It includes information about the need to recycle, directions for what to recycle, and how to get started.

Earth Buddies (http://library.thinkquest.org/06aug/00442/index1.htm ) is a website sponsored by S.E.E.K. created by students for students. In addition to educational and activity components, this group issues a challenge and provides tools to become earth friendly.

Earth Day Network (www.earthday.org) is a wealth of information.  It contains a footprint calculator which measures an individual’s impact on the earth.

One of best sites is The Imagination Factory (www.kid-at-art.com).  This site is where recycling meets art.  It is fun, educational, and inspiring.  It includes a Scout Badge Matcher which helps connect projects to particular Girl Scout Badges and a Trash Matcher which connects throw away materials with a project.
