Version 1

In this game an item is presented to represent each part of the story. At the end of the story, you hide all the items and see how many the girls can remember. Associating an item with each part of the story helps the girls to remember the story of Juliette Low.

Juliette Low was the founder of Girl Scouting. I'd like to tell you a little about her life:

  • Juliette was born on Oct 31, 1860 - Halloween (Hold up a pumpkin)
  • Her uncle took one look at her and said, "She looks like a Daisy" - this nickname stuck with her for the rest of her life (Hold up silk Daisy)
  • Juliette always loved animals, especially horses. (Show toy horse)   
  • She also loved to draw and paint pictures - so much, that she created children's magazine with all of the articles and pictures done by children (Show crayons, colored pencils or paint brushes)
  • Juliette married Willie Gordon Low in 1886. (Hold up wedding ring)
  • Some of the rice thrown at their wedding became lodged in Juliette's left ear, causing her to become deaf in this ear (Show baggie of rice)
  • Juliette and Willie both loved adventure, so together they decided to move to England (Hold up sailboat)
  • Once in England, Juliette met Lord & Lady Baden-Powell. She very much enjoyed what they had done with the Boy Scout movement (Hold up picture of a boy)
  • Willie passed away while they lived in England, Juliette returned to Georgia and made the famous phone call which was heard around the United States, "Come on over to my house tonight, we are going to hold the first Girl Scout meeting!" (Hold up telephone)
  • As with all Girl Scout troops, money was needed to keep the program running, so Juliette sold the pearl necklace Willie had given her for a wedding present. (Show strand of pearls)
  • Girl Scouting in the USA was born on March 12, 1912 and continues today with over 3 1/2 million members. (Hold up GS pin)

Now, cover up all the items you have been showing, divide girls into teams and give them a short period of time to list all the items. See how much they remember of the story!
