Meeting #17: You and Others--Safety Posters

You and Others: Build Skills in Communication (YaO2)
You and Others: Learn About Safety (YaO4)

6:30-7:00--Patrol Time: The girls brought in their CWFF Banks that they made in the fall, but now they were full of pennies! Each Patrol rolled their pennies and each group shared and compared how much they each collected at Horseshoe.


7:10-7:25--We talked about making a poster and how to effectively communicate an idea. We talked about use of colours, size of text, etc. (YaO2#3)

7:25-8:00--The girls broke up into groups of 2 or 3. They could pick any topic of safety that they wanted. We talked about safety ideas--water safety, street safety, on-line safety, car safety, etc. (YaO4#3)

8:00-8:15--Each group presented their poster and then the rest of the group guessed what their message was and talked about what was effective and what wasn't effective. Again, we talked about colours and text and what works in a poster. The girls did a great job of critiquing each poster, and we emphasized constructive criticism and giving positive feedback with the negative. (YaO2#3)

8:15-8:30--We sang a few songs before closing.
