JULIETTE LOW WIDE GAME
Starting Point: Each patrol of girls receives a note saying Juliette Low started Girl Scouting in Savannah by telephoning a friend. The first clue will be by the telephone (real or play phone).

1st Point: The first clue told them where to find a person with a daisy. That person also has a paper pumpkin. Say "Juliette Low was born on Halloween, so draw a nose, mouth, or eyes to start a Jack-o-Lantern." Then show the patrol where the trail, marked with paper pumpkins, starts and tell them to follow it.

2nd Point: At the end of the pumpkin trail will be an adult. Tell them that Juliette Low liked to put on plays. Ask the patrol to choose and act out a Halloween character. When you guess what they are acting out, make a trail sign to show the team which way to go.
(To make a trail sign, use leaves, twigs, etc. to make an arrow in the direction they need to go OR use a branch to mark in the dirt; have this ready, but perhaps covered up with a paper.)

3rd Point: At this point, there will be an adult dressed as an Indian. Tell them that Juliette Low's grandmother was captured by Indians and lived with them. Her Indian name was Little-Ship-Under-Full-Sail. If the patrol can tell you which way is north by looking at the sky (sun/moon), the Indian will give them a sketch map to the next point.

4th Point: The map leads the patrol to a person with an American flag. She says that the first handbook was called "How Girls Can Help Their Country". She asks them to tell her two ways a Girl Scout can be a good citizen on a hike. Then ask them to fold the flag. Then direct them to a trail marked with red ribbons.

5th Point: At the end of the red ribbon trail, meet the team and say that Juliette Low has friends all over the world. Ask the patrol to show how they would greet a Girl Guide from another country. Then she says that Juliette Low camped with many girls and was a good storyteller.

Direct them back to the meeting place.

 
 

 

 

         

JULIETTE LOW AND GIRL SCOUTING #1
(An Action Story)
As the story is read, players do the following actions when certain words are said. Practice the motion first so everyone understands.  This is easier to play standing up. 

"JULIETTE LOW" - Join hands with persons on right and left
"SCOUT’ OR SCOUTING"- Smile and salute
"WORLD" - Spin around once
“FUND” - Punch a button with one finger and say “cha-ching”


In 1912, Juliette Low became interested in scouting while visiting her friends, Lord and Lady Baden-Powell, who lived in England and who started Boy Scouting and Girl Guiding in their part of the world.

When Juliette Low came back to America, she thought scouting was so wonderful that she decided to start the first Girl Scout Troop in her own home town of Savannah, Georgia. This she did on March 12, 1912 and this first little troop of eight girls was the first girl scout troop in this part of the world.

This first Girl Scout troop was so successful that Juliette Low wanted to see Girl Scout troops all over the world. She knew that Girl Scouting would help girls all over the world become friends and to help build world peace and good will.

Girl Scouting grew and grew until now you are not only a member of your own little troop, but also a member of the Girl Scouts of the USA and the world Association of the Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.

Juliette Low died in 1927 and her friends wanted to pay her a great tribute. They knew that her greatest dream was of world friendship and of world peace and that she hoped to accomplish this through Girl Scouting. So her friends started a memorial fund in her honor and called it the Juliette Low World Friendship Fund and each year all Girl Scouts in the United States contributed to this Fund which helps Girl Scouting all over the world.

Your contributions to this Fund will travel to all parts of the world and help Girl Scouts in many ways; maybe it will help to send older Girl Scouts from our country to Our Chalet in Switzerland, where Girl Scouts from all over the world get together to exchange ideas and to help build world peace.

We have no way of knowing how far our contribution may travel; we have no way of knowing what ways it may be returned to us in new friendships and world peace. But we do know that the Juliette Low World Friendship Fund is doing a lot of good. We do know that we are helping the fund to spread Girl Scouting around the world when we make our contribution to the Juliette Low World Friendship Fund.

 
 

The Juliette Low Story #2 
(Divide the group into eight group; these will be Juliette Low, Georgia, Horses, London, Lord Baden-Powell, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts)

Sound Effects- (when they hear their names they stand up and make their sound. It's even cuter when they have to do an action as well)
        Little Girls -                     Stand and giggle
        Juliette Low -                  Curtsy and say, "Be my friend"
        Georgia-                          Wave and say, "Hi, y'all!"
        Horses-                           Stamp your feet and say, "Neighhhhhhh."
        Lord Baden-Powell-        Bow formally and say, "How d'ya do?"
        London-                          Sing, "London Bridge is Falling Down"
        Boy Scouts-                    Make Scout sign and say "Be prepared."
        Girl Scouts-                     Make Scout sign and say “On My Honor”

Story-
Once upon a time there was a little girl named Juliette Low who lived in Georgia and loved to ride horses. After she grew up she went to London where she met Lord Baden-Powell who founded the Boy Scouts. She was fascinated by the work he was doing. She studied with him awhile and decided to found a troop of Girl Scouts for the little girls who liked to ride horses in Georgia. So Juliette Low said good-bye to the Boy Scouts in London and came home with the ideas that Lord Baden-Powell gave her. She formed a group of little girls, who liked to ride horses and be together, into a troop of Girl Scouts. And they loved it so much that the idea spread and now there are Girl Scout troops all over the world.

Aren't we glad that a little girl named Juliette Low, from Georgia who liked horses went to London and met Lord Baden-Powell, the founder of the Boy Scouts, and came to start the wonderful world of Girl Scouts!
