6:30-7:00 Patrol Time: We gave the girls 15 hiking safety rules and told them to make up raps that included at least three of the rules expanded upon. Some groups did better than others, but they were all varying degrees of creative. (HDAC#1) (Patrol Time #27 (Word doc)
7:00-7:15: Horseshoe and they presented their raps
7:10-7:35: We talked about courteous ways to behave on public and private property. Then we had the girls split up into groups of 3 and come up with two short skits--one on what you should do and one on what you shouldn't do. (H#7)
7:35-8:20: Make a recycled scrapbook (HDAC#2): This idea came at us from a few different directions. We took three brown paper lunch bags, folded them in half, and the sewed a seam up along the fold to hold the books together. One of our Guiders did this before the meeting. The we printed out 3-4 photos for each girl from the hikes we've been on so far. One of our Guiders used to scrapbook and had tons of paper for them to use to decorate their books. My mother had also offered us leftover paper that she didn't need anymore too.
We told the girls to leave a few pages blank as well, so they could draw their pictures of nature on our next hike, which is the second part of this activity.
8:20-8:30: Clean-up and closing
